Nice fabric choices! Maybe you should tconsider sewing a petticoat, as the dress in the museums picture is probably taken with a such underneath...

You've been busy with this pattern! :-) This one looks great as well - you've got a great eye for combining fabrics! This one is like a strawberry daiquiri!

The fabric combination you chose really set off the design well. Good job! And what a great site where you found the pattern. Thank you for sharing it with us.

Shannie, Now, this is an authentic 50's dress because I can remember my mother wearing this exact dress - and looking wonderful in it. Your fabric choices are superb and speak perfectly to the original era. I agree that this dress would be smashing, too, in your proposed navy and white nautical prints. Lovely, Lily

This is so pretty! What a perfect choice in fabric combinations! The bow is adorable. It looks very vintage and very comfortable.
