I love this dress and how you redid it. I am looking for something similar for a wedding dress. This will give me inspiration.

This is an amazing design and you should be very proud!! I love vintage designs, and wish the Mad Men series was back on so that I could drool over outfits like these. Well Done!

Love this! Wonderful interpretation of the original and fit is fantastic. The bias trim at the empire seam is just too cute.

I just watched this episode last night! When I saw your dress this morning, the first thing I thought about was Peggy. I love your modern adaptation. You wear it well. Can't wait to see what comes next....

Wow - fabulous Mad Women dress - better than the original. I had looked at this pattern, but was put off by the lack of sleeves, so will use your review to have another look.
