That is just the most darling dress! Beautiful! Its really great to see some real 30's patterns made up. I find the drawings on 30's patterns the hardest to consolidate with "real life" so your reviews are most helpful. Being rather short, I wonder how difficult it is shortening these without losing the gracefulness of the cut.

Really lovely! The large buttons along with trim really set it off. Great job!

So beautiful and it just took my breath away at first glance, the color is so catchy but not too much and the trim and details seem so right. Thanks for posting.

Great result! Lovely colour. Thank you for the review. I've been eyeing up 30s patterns with the narrow skirt panels at the front and wondering how these would look, it's reassuring that they are flattering. (At least in this pattern!).
