What a beautiful, versatile dress. The two fabrics are perfect. I would never have pictured this dress from the line drawing on the pattern instructions. Great job.

You look fabulous! Great dress! Makes me feel better to know I'm not the only one with some patterns in the stash from back in the 70's, although none of mine has aged this well!

I love your dress and how you used the ruffle fabric. Give me inspiration as I have some ruffle fabric tucked away in my stash.

love this style and the way you used the latino frill! I like your look with the belt best. I wish they would reprint this pattern, I have a jersey RTW dress similar to the flared version and would love to make it!
