This is stunning - the lines in the design are gorgeous - has me scrambling through my vintage patterns to find something similar. And you did a great job - think I'd be challenged to get the pleats straight/even/etc.

Wow! Love the blouse and skirt together. I am so glad you had such fun making them. Both have such great details.

*LOVE* the radiating darts! I have a couple dress patterns with this feature, and I really like how your fabric highlights this design feature.
