Another gorgeous dress! I think your lovely styles could convert us all to vintage sewing. The capelet is a terrific addition. You do such beautiful work.

What a pretty summer dress. These vintage styles look so perfect on you and you sew them so well that you really do belong in the exhibit! Very helpful tips too, especially about the horsehair braid, thanks.

Ah, so gorgeous!! I never looked twice at this pattern but LOVE the way you belted it, I think that makes all the difference in the world. Your sewing is exquisite!! Thank you for reviewing this. I have a wedding to go to this summer and this maybe the perfect dress! And you went to see a Balenciaga exhibit, I am insanely jealous!!! And am also sure you did fit right in with the exhibit.
