This popped in the 'side bar' today and I was stunned by the Marvel comic version and love it. The 'walkaway dress' is back in style was because it was featured on the Great British sewing bee and is selling in droves. I tried the Vogue version of the 'apron dress', but it doesn't work for busty/hippy me.

Beautiful dress! I have not made this, myself, but have read other reviewers used a waist stay to correct problem of this dress riding higher in front due to the weight of the fabric in the back skirt. Hope this helps!

it's lovely, glad to know to be wary about possible strangulation ;-) And I really love all the different creative versions
