Interesting yoke treatment. Amazing how the hemline can make or break a dress or skirt. Glad you were able to see that that was the issue and come up with the right length. It is a cute style.

Very nice, and it does look current. I think I remember this pattern, though... :)

I love the changes you made to the neck and the addition of the buttons - and I love red! Beautiful job. Oh, and a great find at 25 cents.

You know what they say about ladies in red?? Great dress and it all goes to show some styles and patterns are timeless.

The black buttons really are the key detail. I have found vintage patterns really choke-y at the neck too. I wonder if everyone just went around feeling like they were being suffocated?

The buttons and gathers make that outfit. LOVE IT!
