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.

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!

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!
