Beautiful fit and great fabric for this pattern. Thanks for sharing. I especially like the dart/pleat interest on the back skirt panels. This looks great on you!

I love the polka dot fabric. Have to say though when I saw it I thought of the girl in the T-Mobile commercials! But she usually looks fabulous so that's a good thing :)

I think my grandmother made this very dress for me when I was in college, only in black with big white polka dots. It's a great dress, and you did a beautiful job on it.

Love love that pink polka dot fabric! And pockets, and the back has great walk-away charm. You did a great job on your first vintage pattern.

Hey, I have this pattern and it's sitting half made in my sewing room right now! I have been playing around with the sleeves, but they're not working for me. I might just make sleeveless like yours. I love it!
