Hats off to you for looking at that crazy picture from Burda and seeing a serviceable garment therein. Nice dress.

Great dress--it does have a vintage look to it! You are inspiring me to make another version of this dress :)

Very pretty dress, Sally! Yes, that model is very unrealistic in her sitting pose - too revealing. Thanks for your review!

I definitely will try this in a cotton. It looks fab, and I agree that the elastic is a distraction for me!

Great version of the traditional buttonfront shirtwaist. Your two takes on this are inspiring ~ great sewing!

What a wonderful dress! I like your "normal person" pose---what a contrast to the Burda pose, lol.

That's it! I am making this dress! I never would have looked twice at this dress otherwise. Everyone's dresses look so nice and comfy.

A really nice dress. I wish the photo were bigger so that we could see it more clearly - any chance of enlarging it?

This version is great too! The print actually gives your dress a vintage look. Very cool. I also like your proper sitting pose!
