HI Where are you in MOntreal I am in the dress!

Thanks! I'm usually not either, but I like a lot of the design elements from the 30s and the patterns often come with the big sleeves... I think having dark, soft, and/or sheer fabric helps minimize them some.

Great information. The dress does look very nice. I'm not a big sleeve person for myself, but it certainly seems OK for you.

Wow, fabulous dress on you and your review was a sewing lesson in itself. Beautiful lines in this dress, wonderfully flattering.

I think that's BEAUTIFUL!!! I agree though that the sleeves are a bit overwhelming. You did great. Rachel

Oh, pretty pretty! I really like that, a lot. It looks fantastic on you. You might not like the mutton chop sleeves (lol), but that dress is VERY becoming on you. And the slip to match. So great! Awesome and very informative review too!
