Such a wonderful interpretation of a vintage, yet modern, designer dress. That neckline has always been one of my favorites, and you wear it SO WELL. :o)

OOPS! Double post sorry:-)

Well done. It looks great - including the collar. The print makes the dress more interesting than it would be in a plain fabric, such as in the rather drab version on the envelope.

Retro, modern chic! You have made one very fashionable dress. Thank you for the review. I wasn't very familiar with Nina Ricci before this. It's difficult to believe these styles are from decades ago. I think they are really timeless.

Fabulous! You're becoming quite the fashion guru around here. :D Oh, and thanks for sharing the link to that Paperpast Yearbook website!

WOW! I love it. You did a great job and the fabric is wonderful. I don't usually like the look of rolled collar clothing. It usually looks alien to me for some reason. But this one rocks! I think it's because the collar drapes forward slightly and we can see your neck.

Pretty dress on you - the fabric is delightful. Thanks for you educational review.

Fab! A chic, beautifully made classic! That Paperpast link is cool! Though too bad the information gets sketchier on either end (they didn't have much for the early 40s either). I so agree about the vintage Vogue designer patterns, they are gorgeous - just like your dress!

Lovely dress -- classic yet contemporary.

This turned out great! I like the print. I've heard that the vintage Vogue designers series is good from one of my sewing friends who sewed them the first time around. Cool how everything eventually comes back!

This is a wonderful dress. I agree with you, the silhouette is wonderful. It is a great style for you. Woaw! Wonderful.

Beautiful dress- It's very flattering on your figure. And while you say the collar style may not suit you, I thought it was the very thing that made it look uniquely yours.

I like the fabric you used on the dress. Also like the simplicity of the style of the dress. Also like the neckline. Great job on making the dress.

Move over, Barrie Pace! You are saving yourself some serious cash flow. A beautiful creation. I really love that collar, it frames your face so nicely. Thanks for the great links, too.

Oh my - what a fabulous foxy looking blast from the past you are in this dress. The style is fabulous on you and I love the print, as well as the great fit you achieved.
