Lovely! It looks great on you, and it doesn't look "vintage" at all, which probably proves that true style is timeless.

The dress looks great on you. I am very impressed that you lined it! The front tucks are a great detail. I agree it would be a good one to do in linen.

Thank you for reviewing this "old" pattern. The dress looks modern to me. And, it's very attractive.
