What a cute dress-would never guess that it is vintage!

What a great dress! I'd swear my mother made the same dress from the same pattern. You look as cute as she did in it.

Just beautiful! As for the darts being higher, the sloper that was used to develop the pattern in the 60's was proportioned differently.

great dress! I love it. It looks retro but not costumey.

I can't believe this is a vintage pattern - that neckline is on so many current patterns! This is so pretty - I especially love the sleeves.

Very cute! I love the neckline and sleeves on this simple sheath dress.
