Well I clicked into your pic and thought . . .OMG that is so pretty. The fabric is to die for. And so very 50's.

The bird fabric is to die for! it must have come off the loom with instructions " MAKE ME INTO A SUNDRESS". I am totally going to steal your short-zipper button trick. Brilliant and eco friendly, think of all the gas you saved not running a specific errand for a silly zipper. I have the same experience with vintage patterns, they are unduly modest around the neckline and they assume you will be wearing a corset/girdle. you get special credit for the piping...what a hassle...so cute!

I love this dress, especially as it has been sewn using the techniques of the 50s. Beautiful work!
