This dress looks great short, and the trim really emphasizes the design lines. I just bought this pattern, so thanks for the review!

Gorgeous! I love your modern twist on this classic pattern. Your dress came out beautifully and you look stunning it too.

Wow. I would have never thought to use a print for a vintage pattern. Great imagination.

I have the pattern, and now feel brave enough to try it. I hope mine turns out as well as yours.

You have been really busy! Great retro dress, and very smart to trim that fab S curve.

Wow, your dress is amazing! I think you should do another in the solids you talked about. And lastly, I love those shoes!

Great dress: love everything about it. Hard to believe it only took you 4 hours to sew: looks like it would have taken weeks. Thanks so much for review..and I, too, love your shoes.

I love the contrast trim on the S curve! I've got this pattern but I haven't found the right fabric for it yet. When I do, I'm going to come back and refer to all your tips! thanks so much!

Now that's a welcome back project! I was hoping you'd get this one done soon, because I'm regretting not buying the pattern for myself and now I at least get to hear about it second hand. I love the combination of pattern and fabric, and we really don't need to discuss those zebra print shoes.

It IS lovely, as everyone has said. I wonder if the Advanced rating has to do with the difficulty of changing the fit?

So smart to add the trim. Those heels are AWESOME. You look like a million bucks. Beautiful.

The addition of trim is a great touch. Love that you made a very modern fabric work so well in this dress.

Welcome back, NiceGirl! Definitely missed your reviews. I was suffering from withdrawal symptoms from more of your creations. You never cease to amaze me. Definitely adore your "groovy to the max" dress! BTW: Heather said that she likes your shoes!
