Beautiful dress, drsue -- very sleek-looking and modern. I like the way you put the two colors together.

Sue, a little bit Dr Crusher but that's not a bad thing. I like it - nice colour combo and an unusual style. Thanks for your thoughtful review.

I think it looks beautiful - regardless of the century! I love the colors -Ann

On your dummy it looks Dr Crusher but I'll bet if you redid the photo to show you yourself wearing it you'd get a more accurate assessment. I like it alot.

I think I'll vote for 21st century. I know what you mean about those points being tricky; I haven't tried one in a knit but even on a woven they can be a bear. Your dress looks nice.

It looks more like a vintage Vogue style pattern. It is almost reminiscent of the 30's 40's era. Beautiful!!! I would sew this dress in a heartbeat. Gorgeous!!!

I think its a cross between Dr. Crusher and maid Marion. I guess if you could do some embellishment on the bodice, add some beads or embroidery, then it would be more like maid Marion. Lovely colors and beautiful stitching!

Very pretty dress, Sue. I also like the colors. It looks like it would be very becoming on you.

Very pretty, and I think it's the color combo (which I like) that makes him think Star Trek. They're always doing monochromatic color blocking. Why couldn't you wear View A? Isn't it the same but with a collar?

I have to vote for Star Trek. It's not a bad thing though, I think I'd like to own a Start Trek dress, a very nice one at that.

I agree with pmorris that your dress reminds me of the 30' or 40's. No matter the time, it looks great. Very unique design and looks like you did a fabulous job.

I absolutely love your dress although it doesn't really remind me of either Star Trek OR Maid Marion. It does look more modern than retro to me, but absolutely fabulous.

What a beautiful version of this dress! Definitely more Maid Marion than Dr. Crusher!

Oh, to be able to wear such a dress! It's beautiful, regardless of the century. I always appreciate you informative reviews.

Really elegant. Actually, this looks sort of like Bonnie Cashin or something to me--so I guess you've managed to hit upon a pretty timeless look, since no one really agrees! The color combination is extremely sophisticated, so banish the Star Trek thought from your head and wear it with pride!

I can see Maid Marion and Dr. Crusher but more importantly I see a beautiful dress. Love the style and your colours. Great reveiw.

Thanks for all the comments, so many of which are making me lol! I'll definetly wear it, mainly to work. It will be interesting if my patients start calling me Dr. Crusher.

My vote is on counsellor Troi :) I like your dress, and I hope to make it up someday too - it's in my pattern collection.

When I first viewed your photo, I thought, "Wow, another great vintage dress!" Not a fan of Star Trek or anything futuristic or fantastical (I slept through Lord of the Rings), can't comment on the likeness there, but I sure love this dress!

what a pretty dress! your dress looks much better than the drawing on the front of the pattern. i think i may try it this weekend!

I like the looks like it would be forgiving on the lower "fluff" of a person and I always like the way these types of fabrics drape.

I didn't see the ST angle until you mentioned it. Actually it reminded me of a Vionnet dress until the mention, then I could see it if I squinted. :)
