This is a real winner on you. Beautifully constructed, and you have the best figure for showing off those 1940 fitted fashions.

What a flattering dress! I love the vintage lines and your choice of fabric. I had a chuckle at your scheduling tips - I often go through a pattern and find those little bits to do first too. The hand stitching often throws me though. Looks great, but after serging the big seams, time seems to CRRAAWLLL!

You look stunning in your gorgeous dress. I am in awe of all the lovely handsewing and finishing. From the dress to the bag to the hair ornament, you have really perfected the elegant, subdued glamour of that period. Simply beautiful. I love hand-sewing, too, and yours is beautiful.

Once in a while words fail me - and this is one of those times. How to say how absolutely beautiful your dress/you are without writing a long, long page - so to cut long short - exquisite!!
