Gorgeous! When I made this I also wanted to do a contrast midriff until I saw the side seam mismatch. But as yours is a border and not really a contrast it totally, totally works. Love it.

Wow, this is pretty. Okay, I like the border print and your use of it, so much. The fit is great on your lovely slim frame, and I always console myself by remembering that when this pattern first came out, ladies wore steel and bone corsets that artificially and uncomfortably reduced their waists (I remember mama's). I like this idea of naming my projects so I will start now, but it might take me awhile to be so eloquent as you. Finally, I propose that we all wear a lovely frock on Wednesday to celebrate the mid-autumn festival. Happy happy and thanks for your review PS: no one will notice the side panels if you dont' tell!

Very pretty and good use of the contrast fabric. I made the halter version but I'm not so happy with the way the bodice came out. I will probably fiddle around with it a bit more until I get it right. I think it's worth it as this is a lovely, classic pattern

Gorgeous, especially what you've done with the print. What a transformation, from retro to perfectly modern!
