What a very thorough review. I especially liked your attention to back-waist length and how this is represented on the pattern envelope. Your alterations photos are extremely helpful and clear. The dress fits you nicely. Well done!

Great dress! and a great review as usual..From what I remember of my mother's dresses from this era, you didn't need waist ease because your girdle was worn even on hot days with a house dress and the pockets aren't skimpy..all a "real lady" put into it was a hanky..lol!

A great dress. I love it, and it looks great on you, in an old-fashioned sort of way. Of course you need more than one of it!
