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.

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!

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 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

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

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