The stripes and the bow on this dress really adds a great flair to the dress. This is the kind of evening dress I would love to wear. Your fabric choice for this dress is just perfect.

You have captured the vintage flair of the original -- love the stripes. Where will you wear it?

Sweet dress! The bustle is adorable too. I love the stripes, and very nice chevrons. Your pattern link isn't working anymore I don't think (though the photobucket is now) - I'd love to see the original pattern you used.

Oh no, Kat, your stripey bow bustle just took my breath away! I really did not expect that! And the elegant simplicity of the front neckline is like a flourescent arrow pointing to the 'pop' of the spectacular back. Your choice of stripes to showcase this balanced and beautiful design was positively inspired. Lovely, lovely, lovely, Lily
