Okay, so I had to go look it up I feel so out of the loop. That is just so amazing! Not only did you make the dress you designed the fabric - fabulous. I have so much to learn! Excellent! :)

It doesn't look costumy at all, huge success! I agree with you that the fabric makes the difference here, your cotton muslin reads as a vintage style but your pattern dress is completely modern! Nice twist!

Very very pretty dress! I love the fabric, I am impressed that you designed it yourself. I would have bought it at the store ;)

This looks both vintage-lovely and modern on you. I enjoyed the whole story of how you put this together. Are you a biologist? (Just wondering where you got your ideas for the fabric motifs.) And thanks for pointing out Karma Kraft.

The fabric you designed is amazing! The dress is a fantastic fit, and looks fabulous on you, not dated at all. Great vintage pattern adapted to modern wear.

How wonderful to have designed your own fabric. (are those shrimp?) The dress is so flattering and I would wear it anywhere with confidence.
