I love the dress and the review. So very vintage, including your hair and makeup. Were you to change these photos to black and white, or sepia, no one would be the wiser.

What ChantillyDreams said. Lovely job and the fabric is exquisite.

I love your dress. Wish you lived closer so we could go out on the town in our vintage dresses. LOL

This dress has so many nifty details! I especially am drawn to the neckline and in lieu of ever finding this pattern I may have to try to recreate it! Thanks for making up these old patterns, it really helps the rest of us get brave! ( My hair will never behave as well as yours does in this pic!)

I love the sleeve details and the front bodice gathering too.
