How CUTE is that!! You look so good in your dress, I *love* your version-I would NOt have purchased this based on the pattern photo, but yours has convinced me-I'm adding it to my wish list (like I need another pattern! lol).

Thank you to everyone for your kind comments! I have been so inspired in the short time I've been lurking here - it is great to see how people take the same pattern and make it their own.

That is so cute. Very retro with your fabric. In addition to learning about patterns, reviews are a source of ideas!

Fabulous retro looking dress and great review, thanks. Looks great on you. BTW your kitchen reminds me of Annie Reed's kitchen in Sleepless in Seattle.

Adorable dress! And I think your sizing is very similar to what I would need, so it's good to see how flattering it looks on you!

It looks great on you, and your review was very helpful. It looks like a complicated project, but your review broke it down very well and I may try it once I get a little more experience under my belt. I've always liked that style!

I love your kitchen, too. The dress is lovely. I scrolled through the others who have fashioned this pattern & it seems to look really good on many different figures & fabric choices. A keeper.
