So cute on you, I love the touches of red in the accents.

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!

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.

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

I love your version of the coffee date dress, so fresh and pretty!

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

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

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.

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?

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

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
