Gorgeous vintage dress. You do such lovely work and create such beautiful garments. So fun to read your review and see what you've done. I was lucky enough to see both the Isabelle de Borchgrave's and Balenciaga exhibits on Saturday. Totally fabulous!

Beautiful dress! I've had this pattern in my stash for a couple years but haven't gotten to it. It's great to see it made up!

Nice review--your pattern would be a Junior Size 17. These odd-numbered patterns were made for smaller waisted, higher busted figures. Teen sizes were often (but not always) designated by a "T," and were even numbers, such as size T14. The dress is lovely! You did such a great job on it! The styles from that era (1950s) were great.
