What a gorgeous pattern, I love it! Can you give me a tip on where I could buy a copy of it? Your dress turned out great as well ;)

I love the pattern and the color that you chose- it can be so hard to avoid using prints but worth it, right? Have you made the belt? I think it could be a really important finish. Good work.

I'm mad about Mad Men and Joan (doesn't she look drop-dead gorgeous???) so I find your dress absolutely fantastic! The collar details are amazing, they don't make patterns with such lovely details nowadays!

They sure don't make bombshell dresses like they used to! This is a fabulous dress; the details are wonderful and you did a great job on it. It shows off your lovely figure so well! I love this pattern and will have to buy it now if I ever see it. AND thanks SO MUCH for the VERY kind words to me on your blog! You're so thoughtful and I'm humbled! :)

While I was looking at the pics, before I read your review, I was thinking to myself 'Oh that looks very Joan'. It's gorgeous and completely and utterly my dream dress. Fantastic work on that collar too.

OH MY GOSH!!!!!!!! That is so perfectly gorgous. I so want this pattern even though it would never look as good on me. You look fabulous!

What a stunning dress. Love the collar -- front and back. Very nice job.

I love it. I would never have looked twice at this pattern before this, but seeing it so it is really great looking and original. The work you did on the collar and neck details is just great.

Va va voom for sure! Love this collar and the color. Vintage patterns have the best details, don't you think?
