View D pictured is size 10, made from a cotton/spandex shirting & worn by a size NZ/AU 8/10 (B=88, W=72, H=93cm) 162cm/5'4" tall.
View D is also shown in a 100% linen sapphire mini houndstooth & a navy/white spot cotton/silk voile.
View E pictured is made from a woven 100% viscose slub which is a fairly loose weave and has dropped (elongated) on the body a lot, so the dress looks longer than it should (this fabric has lovely drape though!).
View F is made from a lightweight 100% cotton gingham and has had no modifications.
