Cute dress. I'm sure you'll get a lot of use from it since you can wear it with or without a tee under it. Thanks for the thorough review.

A great colour. You've done well to get the fit right as it's obviously a style that needs to fit precisely.

I love your version. Well done. I'm also teaching myself fitting adjustments and I think you need to invest in a few good book. I use Fit for Real People (Pati Palmer), Pattern Fitting with Confidence (Nancy Zieman) and Fast Fit (Sandra Betzina). Each one shows a different technique.

this dress looks so fantastic on you - great job! As you say, there are so many cute details, the gathering, the pockets, the shoulder straps - now that you've done all that work muslining you may as well take maximum advantage - a winter version sounds just the ticket!

Very cute and retro looking. It fits you really nicely through the bodice and hips.

Absolutely charming ... and if it's made of lining, we'll never tell.

You look really cute, and that color is very good on you. I've been wanting to finish the muslin of this for some time.
