Gorgeous dress, vintage but easily wearable in 2012

I love the piping and the vintage hat! Beautiful construction. This pattern is in my stash, time to pull it out. I have a collection of over 200 vintage hats, I just love them, but alas I can only wear a select few as I have a 24" head and most are for 22". So unless it perches on top like yours it lives in a hat box and gets taken out to be admired and displayed from time to time. I say wear the hat which ever way suits you best, who will know?

Lovely dress. The ability to use the dickie or not gives flexibility. Maybe a pink lace dickie for dress-up? Also re your buttonhole challenge, my Bernina salesperson said to be sure to press the reverse button down until the needle starts tacking. I did need to take the machine in once for recalibration. Good luck with that. I visit your blog often and also look forward to your SW entries, but can no longer leave comments there.

Wow! Great dress! All of the extra work and details that you put into it certainly have paid off. And where in the world did you find that amazing fabric?

Thank you everyone for your lovely compliments! And for those of you who are wondering, the fabric came from JoAnn Fabrics many years ago.

Sooo cute. Your extra touches--the buttons, the piping--combined with great looking fabric really make this dress special.

The color is great, and I love how the piping makes the collar stand out. Well done.
