Very beautiful - that top stitching does give it a great "pop".

Your dress is very cool-thanks for a complete and interesting review. I *think* I could do a vintage pattern now.

I for got to mention, what a neat pattern... love that detail at the bustline. You have great patience to start over... and were rewarded for your efforts... Thanks for sharing

Great review! Head to the paint department of your local big box home improvement store and check out the painter's tape. I have a roll of masking tape that is LIME GREEN that I use to put special lines as needed on my needle plate. Easy to remove cheap and oh so helpful.

I love the details on this dress, and the fabric you chose (and the way you used it). One would never guess that you had fitting issues with this pattern: the final result looks beautiful!

This is such an interesting vintage dress - that diamond insert is fabulous! I've never seen anything like it and you've done a good job on the topstitching.
