Up for the Challenge???

Well, I've joined another challenge. It's the "Mix It Up March Challenge" with Alethia and the ladies at SEW MUCH TALENT . Each week in March we will sew a new project. What I'm really excited about is the challenge of sewing an item using a pattern from a company that I've never used before. I wonder what challenges will be met with this experience.
Yes, I must mention that there is a prize waiting.

After seeing the black and white dresses by Erika B's http://erikab' (Asos knockoff), Kiah's(   Asos Curve geo mono print dress, and the geometric print dress worn by Serena Williams, I went to my stash and decided that I would make the following dress.
This dress has the square neck. It is for my aunt using Simplicity 8523 including short sleeves and a kick-pleat in the back. Another is being made for my daughter and will have three-quarter sleeves and a godet added instead of an open vent.
The sides matched up.

The invisible zipper is installed.
 I am wearing my aunt's dress.
                                               Daughter's short sleeve version is complete.

Both together
