This is just the "retro" style of dress that seems so popular this year. Great job, & thanks for the review.

" I love the way the skirt hangs - just full enough to be swingy, but not overly full. " You're right. The skirt is perfect, isn't it? And it is the kind of design that could work in lots of different fabrics for different occasions. As a matter of fact, your version could go just about anywhere. Very nice!

I just bought this pattern and hope to make it in the next week or so. Glad to hear it was somewhat easy. Yours looks really cute!

To answer the question about the tucks - I made two tucks/darts out a few inches on each side from the zipper. I didn't take in much - only about 1/4" in each. About the skirt, I didn't do anything to make it 'poofy'. It's just the way the fabric hangs. It may have something to do with having two layers of fabric though.

How pretty! Question, did you use anything to make the skirt kinda 'poofy'?

Cute dress! I like the neckline on this view.

Very nice! Just wondering how many tucks you put in at the neckline and where they were placed.

It sounds adorable. I can't see the picture - it's asking me for a login. -Ann
