Very cute. I just downloaded the pattern from Burda. Kate Spade has a dress that looks an awful lot like this and its priced at over $300

Too cute! Adore the ruffle. And your red shoes. I'm off to download the pattern for this dress. . . .

cute, cute, cute....I am too old to wear sleeveless except under a jacket but this dress might work for that. Did you download the pattern and tape it do you feel about that project? Is it more time consuming than tracing a Burda pattern?

JuneHawk said...
Thanks everyone! Linda, I did download the pattern and taped it together. I normally hate doing that but this one wasn't too bad. HOWEVER, it didn't include seam allowance so on top of taping, I had to trace the seam allowance. Those two combined are a pain in the butt! However, it was worth it, I love the dress.

Absolutely adorable on you! I love the addition of the red accessories, too.

LOVE it! Perfect fit and the color choices couldn't be cuter. Great job!

Even though it's distinctive, it would look very different in a dark solid or with a pegged skirt portion.

What a great choice of a red belt with apple green! The dress is terrific and you look wonderful in it.

What a stand out dress. I love the color and the accent in red. So adorable.

I downloaded this pattern not long after it came out - can you tell me why I've never gotten around to sewing it when it's so darned cute? I love yours - that's definitely a dress to put on when it's gray outside, instant springtime. And I love the ruffle.

Wonderful dress, it is darling on you and the ruffle is perfect.

Love the blog photos. I'm sure all of the women in the '50s did a little housework in their heels and pearls. The dress is adorable on you. You chose the perfect fabric, belt, shoes, etc. Great job!
