Gorgeous dress for a Frank Sinatra party! I love the fact that you have obviously recently travelled with your sewing machine!

Love your dress. It reminds me of the beautiful women in the old James Bond movies - a definite hit at a party.

Ooh la la! This is the Audrey-est dress I've seen in a long time. Would have won the Project Runway Fashion Icon challenge if you'd had Audrey Hepburn as your icon! Lovely.

That is just magnificent. No other word will do - the fabric is rich and just a treat to see. The collar is - very very. I am taken back to senior prom dress. Also fitted, also brocade, same style, same length, made by my fur though but WOW...what a trip down memory lane.

Don't you love to dress like this? Women in that era certainly put more effort in the way they looked! Your dress is fabulous. Truly cool!

I like your constructino details and the dress is utterly spot on for your Sinatra party. I've been watching TCM all weekend -- it would fit in on the "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes"-- I could see Jane Russell in this.

This reminds me of my 1958 Barbie! It is gorgeous. It may be faux- but it sure looks like a million dollars.

That dress is so gorgeous! Looks like it's right out of the wardrobe room for "Mad Men"!

Great collar! I always swoon over the brocades but never know what to do with them. You made very good use of yours in this stunning dress.

Very cool! Love the fabric and a fantastic finish! The shape reminds me of an Audrey Hepburn dress.
