I tried this once, but agree with the comments you made about lining and the waist. I am ready to try again!

My, such a beautiful dress on you! I'm impressed at your expert modifications to perfect the drape and fit! (Regarding scratchy petticoats--we used to starch ours and lay them in a circle to dry--they stuck out excessively. Sometimes more isn't better.)

Your dress is so beautiful. You have a great figure, and the dress shows it off perfectly.

Wow, what a beautiful result! Even the photo looks very professional! Honestly, you could be a Vogue model! Thanks for the review and the construction details.

What a lovely creation, and you have the perfect figure for it too. I think the lining really adds to the retro look. You really should be wearing scratchy, starched petticoats under it though, to be totally retro!

Size wise I normally make a 10 - the bodice on this on runs super tight though, so I made a 12. I would reccomend making a muslin of the bodice first - which I did in 10 originally. It's possible that I just grew from my last bout of sewing a few years ago!!!! Thanks for all the compliments everyone - I feel really inspired to keep sewing...

Beautiful dress. So when you say you needed a larger size, did you mean a larger size than you expected because you buy a smaller size due to ease? Or did you actually need to make a larger size than you measure?

What a beautiful dress! It looks great on you. Thanks for the tips on the lining.

Gorgeous sundress. I'm going to have to get this pattern. Thanks for the info about the interlining. Do you use a particular seller on Ebay for the cool retro fabric?

The additional fullness of the skirt really makes this dress! Thanks for detailing that improvement you made.
