You are a brave sewer... to put together a dress without instructions! You did a fabulous job. YOu should be proud of your accomplishment!

I like your color combination. It looks great! No instructions for something as intricate as this must have been a real challenge. Nice job!

It looks like you don't need no stinkin' instructions! Cheers for figuring out a vintage dress that's so unique. Glamorous. You deserve the trophy!

Was there a pattern company name? You look wonderful--Did you make the dress for a special occasion?

What a challenge this must have been. You are definitely up for anything to have tackled this with no instructions. Love the emerald green.

Fabulous dress! I've got many vintage patterns and nearly all have instructions, more or less detailed. None including basics, which apparently were obvious to sewers then! I made a gown a bit like yours years ago, and I had to use a rhinestone broach in the front because I couldn't figure out how to sew the pointed seam between top and skirt! Your gown is gorgeous.

Wow! Thank you for all of the very kind words. It definitely was a challenge that taught me a lot. I did not make this for any occassion specifically, though I think a "celebretory completion of vintage dress with out instructions dinner " is in order.

I actually have the same pattern from the same seller, but got it a while ago and have yet to use it... will have to check whether it came with instructions... you're right, some of them just don't. Glad you could complete the dress anyway -- it turned out absolutely gorgeous! Love the color combination. Congratulations!
