Holy smokes! That's a gorgeous dress made even better by your fabric choice, the perfect fit, and showing your figure in a classy way. You look absolutely divine in that dress... Wear it to your next class reunion & you'll make everyone else jealous! :)

Wonderful! You could have stepped off the pages of Vogue - circa 1950s.

Young lady...where are your gloves? (Just kidding). If you ever wanted to change your outfit for a more night time look, you could add veiling to your hat. Otherwise, nice job.

You wear these clothes so well! I love the back of the outfit

Very elegant, and I love the colour. I'd love to see the pattern, too, but the link would not work for me.

Lovely outfit! I have a pencil skirt out of that very same fabric and also lined it in red. You always make such pretty retro clothes! I love the way you styled your outfit.

So pretty-the back has such great detail.

Breathtaking! The capelet is the perfect accent for the outfit underneath, which is equally stunning!
