I LOVE vintage dresses from the 40's and 50's. , I love even more the fact that there are always patterns to be found for them. Great job on the dress! It is fabulous and looks wonderful on you!

Beautiful dress Em! I too love that 40's to 50's transition look. I know for a fact that I'd have kleenex in my pockets! LOL! I think every coat I own has a pack of tissues in it's pocket. Good luck to you in the contest!

Look at you!!! This is GREAT Em! I think this dress would look fabulous in any print, but it is so incredibly striking in all white. I agree with you - it's classy and timeless. Great job!

Nice work and what a great selection for the pattern - I would wear this everyday - so practical with the pockets and very flattering styling. I also really like your choice of lime green contrasted accessories - well done!

Your charming and authentic sundress is the epitome of warm weather Elegance! I love the lines, the pockets, the fabric, your workmanship - everything. And I believe your lovely green hat is authentic era, too, is it not? You look smashing! Very lovely, Lily
