Thank you - Yes a real find to see a website still carries buckles to cover! Thank you all - I LOVE these very cool sleeves too :-)

Yay for you on pushing your limits and doing a dress that's really cool in the vintage fashion forward look.

Charming outfit. It looks truly vintage. Thanks for the info on the buckles (I wondered where those had gone).

Fabulous dress. I hope you get invited to a wedding or a fancy party so more people can enjoy it on you. I would bet you were the best dressed woman at the casino.

Also made the raisin charmeuse pants, and a sorbetto blouse for another option with that WOW sleeves bolero jacket :-) Thank you everyone.

What a lovely outfit! I especially like the cuffs, and the flared skirt. I think it will work really well in cottons too, for a different look.

Fabulous vintage dress! One of the best I've ever seen! Love your fabric and your great big smile. I am sure you have many many compliments at the Casino!

Thanks you so much. It feels so yummy on my skin to wear and I won $5.00 at the Casino lol!

It's a wonderful look, I love the collar and cuffs. Hope you get lots of great wear out of it.

Great dress and jacket, nice work and I love the fabrics! It seems to me like with these vintage patterns, often the smaller and mail order companies had even less complete instructions than the big 4. Congrats on figuring everything out -- looks great on you!

Lovely dress! You look great in it. You certainly challenged yourself; and were very successful. I'd love to try a real vintage dress one day soon. I'm not quite up to it yet though.

Wow, really amazing work! I love the point cuffs on the jacket, super stylish.

Wow. I'm really floored with this outfit and you were right. You did wow your husband as well. Good job.
