Wouldn't have guessed the pattern drawing from your dress - particularly the hair style! :) Very nice, elegant dress that you got from this. (Stunning dressing or evening gown.)

Thanks for all your nice comments! Elona, that sounds like a wonderful idea... it could be very dramatic made with the skirt open down the front and fastening with buttons/loops at the waist. Annette, I got the idea from Balenciaga designs from the 60s; he often made the waist lower in back. I really like the Vogue styles from the 60s and they are not that hard to find on eBay, etc.

Very nice! I especially like the way you curved the casing for the drawstring down in the back.

Very graceful dress. I love the styles from that period.

I've made this one, and would like to note that with that decolletage and done up in a light, drapy fabric, it can be a stunning dressing gown, if you don't have kids around the house.
