Both versions are quite lovely! The first version still screams early 30's to me. I think a self fabic belt for the second version would work nicely.

Thank you all for your lovely comments! I've edited the link to the pattern image, as somehow it was going to the wrong pattern.

It's a beautiful dress; very breezy and elegant. Not 'frumpy' at all!

Just think of the ruffles as a precursor of the peplum and you're right on trend. I love the whole thing.

The dress is very charming! and I expect that silk chiffon flutters about beautifully. Must be a dream to wear :)

Thank you all! Elona, I used Pixlr-O-Matic on these photos. Quick & dirty, but free and downloadable from the internet

I think its really cute, the chiffon flows wonderfully.

The dress is adorable, and you were right: It needs those hip ruffles. Flutter is what it's all about with this one. I think it is cute enough that you should make it again in a solid. On a different subject, how did you get those vintage color values in your photos?

I love this dress and you wear it well! You were right to choose silk chiffon.
