I just wrote a long comment and somehow lost it! UGH! Which is funny because I just read your blog and saw how you'd lost your entry about the shoulder pads. I LOVE the dress and pattern. It is very flattering on you. I found your blog very educational as we seem to have the exact same fitting issues (minus the FBA which I never need). I also LOVE the vintage patterns, especially for evening wear. Great job!

I just love this dress and the way it looks on you. I couldn't agree with you more about today's formalwear patterns. Personally, I go for vintage / retro every time. The designs are just so much more special. Now I'm going to have to scour EBay for that pattern!

Agreed that there aren't many good current formal patterns, but these reissues are wonderful. Love the colors, both in general and on you.

Looks lovely on! (hanger appeal low) Its elegant, and has impact as a design in the colours you chose.

sugarduck said...
Beautiful. That turquoise color is SUPER flattering on you. And your seams look great, despite the devil fabric (photos tend to magnify little puckers...I imagine they look perfect in "real life"). Amazing work!

Gorgeous dress, very flattering fit.

Fabulous dress on you! Actually, just to prove I mean it, I love your version so much I've just bought the pattern from in England! Doesn't matter about photos as long as you look wonderful in it in real life and enjoy wearing it......

Beautiful work. I agree with you that there is an unseen elegance of the vintage patterns that are just not found today. Love the colors
