Lovely! I didn't get to read this before making it up myself, but thankfully, as you said, it's easy and there weren't many modifications. Great review - very detailed!

I love this!! Your reviews of vintage patterns are inspiring me to dig into some of the patterns that i have stashed away. I always worry that they will look "old fashioned," but your garments are always wonderfully current!!!

You shine in this dress! I got such a kick out of seeing the pictures of Heather, so proud in her perfect graduation dress with her awards and her teachers and her pals. Just beautiful, both of you!

Great to see a really modern take on a vintage pattern. And no zipper needed! Looks really nice with the chain belt.

Great job on your keyhole dress. I love how the fabric pattern mimics the dress design; a perfect marriage between pattern and fabric.

I love the way you can take a really simple pattern and turn it into something really fabulous and expensive looking. This dress is so great.

Neat! I'd never heard Cher's version of one of my FAVORITE songs. :o) She looks so pretty there, too, but not QUITE as pretty as you in your new keyhole dress! VERY cute, and you're right, it really would make a cute top, too. (Did you read where Chastity is starting the process of becoming a man?)

Something so very sweet and just a little sad to see all those beautiful kindergartens on their big day. Why do I always get tears in my eyes at graduations??? Well, I hope you wore your same-fabric dress and matched your lovely daughter! I love to think about H. moving through the important events of her childhood in clothing made by mom. And it isn't too late for a mood ring--I just bought mood beads at J's to add to a tie on a blouse I sewed!!!

Well, look at YOU! You look so stylish and cute in your new top! I used to always watch "Sonny and Cher" when I was a little girl ..... so many years ago! Your reviews always give me a fun trip down Memory Lane .

Well, I'm old enough to remember the Jiffy patterns! This one turned out really cute and your fabric choice makes it look very current. Nice job.
