Maria, you have made so many great versions of this pattern! The piped front and sleeves on this dress are very flattering and you look gorgeous modelling it too. A perfect use for your special vintage fabric.

What happened to winter? Lovely dress. I particularly like the blue trim and the buttons.

My view too is that the princess seam should go over the bust, so much so that while making a muslin for a jacket the seam was so off by the time I had it right I didn't want to make it any more! Peggy Sagers from Silhoutte Patterns has a fitting Q/A in SewNews April2013 saying these type of sems only have to reach within 3 inches from bust point. Well since she gets paid for her point of view...I won't be changing more muslins for that reason! Thank you for your review, I really love the piping.

What a great TNT! Every version is unique, I hardly recognized the original pattern.

Your many versions are great with the various details and all good fit. The piping on this one looks smart and is a nice detail on your lovely dress.

I'm confused. The pattern shown does not match your dress. I really like the dress though.

Hi Nancywin I don't understand why the wrong pattern is showing on this review but is correct on my previous shirt dress review.
