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

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.

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

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.

Great idea to use striped cotton for this fancy dress -- it's a wow!
