That is sew sweet. Hey, we have the same haircut. I wonder if I could pull that dress a much bigger size though. Ha ha.

Your dress fits beautifully thanks to your pattern alterations and the added back neckline darts. The slimmed down sleeves look just right.

The style is wonderful on you! Young and pretty, but sophisticated at the same time. Beautiful.

Cute, cute cute. I love all the pattern alterations you made. It fits beautifully and yes it suits you just fine. I don't think it will suit someone 20 years older (like me, unfortunately)!

I agree with clare and in my own opinion is if the dress was finished just a the knee level and worn with platform shoes or pointed shoes with a low cut,to make to look more in proportion with your shapely legs.

I love it! I don't know if the guitar in the background was a deliberate touch, but it gives the whole dress a kind of retro feel - early 70's, going to the hootenany. I think the dress is charming.

It's much shorter than I would wear it, but I think it looks really good on you. Great print too.

This is a beautiful dress as,ofcourse, anything made with Liberty's has to be ! Thanks so much for the link to Shaukat -it looks amazing - cant think wht I havn't heard of them I dont think they advertise though. Will be making a trip!

you look like Edie Sedgwick!! i think the shortness looks totally 60's. hot! When you say "folded out 6 folds of the sleeves" do you mean, folded them out in the pattern and then cut the sleeve WITHOUT them?
