Thanks for your response. I ended up making this dress myself and thought it turned out great. Your remarks were very helpful.

Thanks again. About the fullness of the skirt: It is quite full. It most certainly needs a crinoline or a ruffled petticoat for the right effect. I do not think it is as full as some of the dresses from that era, however. That may be because it is a gored type skirt. Later, with the actresses' permission I can post a photo of the dress with undergarments and accessories actually on her so this can be more helpful. One notation to pay attention to - I should mention the location of the natural waist measurement is very important. If you make this yourself pay attention to where your waist/back/neck actually sits and how it compares to the pattern. Mine was OK but this could have been trouble if it was off.

I love this dress and getting ready to make it. But I prefer the very full look of the 50's circle dresses. Would this dress be able to look like that with a crinoline?

I've been waiting for someone to review this pattern as I just received it in the mail this week. Yours is a great result.
