This is a really nice classical dress, and the white trims make it look less serious and more classy.

Excellent review; I felt like I was in your sewing room with you. Great fit, great colors, great trim work. This looks *nothing* like a waitress uniform; it's a pretty classic and timeless dress that I hope you re-make many times, as it looks wonderful on you. Lovely, Lily

Excellent fit for you. I can't say it makes me think of a waitress; just don't wear an apron with it. ;) Most definitely wearable. It would probably be fun with a print as well.

It is a timeless look, but has a definitive vintage vibe. It brings back memories of some dresses I had "back when." You did a nice job sewing it.

Wow, a dress that fits straight out of the envelope, and vintage no less! I am jealous. I , too think this looks very classy. Your issues with the neck have resolved nicely with all your hard work to fix it, good save!

Great job! Black and white is such a great combination - even when it's out, it's in. The white trim detailing is sharp and the dress looks great on you! Very classic!

Your dress looks very classic (and classy): I love the white trim on the black.

Imagine finding a vintage pattern that fits without major alterations! That's gold, girl. This is the kind of style you can make again & again, so you are extra fortunate. Good for you on persevering with the neckline!

You did a great job on your first trimming project! I don't think you look like a waitress at all - you look casual but collected and classy :-)
