Wow! Nicely done. I like your work around on the fabric shortage, it certainly didn't hurt the outcome. Thank you for your very helpful review.

Thanks for your review, I'm looking for a 1950s reproduction pattern for a friend and I think I just found it!

I love this dress and have purchased the pattern in hopes of making. You did a fantastic job and have given me the nudge I need to pull this out of my inventory and check my stash for spring. Thank you.

Fab! I love this dress! I am starting view A in taffeta. I would have never thought to do it up in wool.

Never mind 50's, I love it today! Fabric, style, fit, all fab. Matching hat too!

What a look! Perfectly fifties, and suits you so well. Great dress, with just the right hat to complete the look.

A lovely dress. It captures the spirit of the fifties beautifully. Reducing the fullness of the skirt was clever.
