What a cute pattern! I am so glad that you added the envelope image, that really makes a difference. I think that you could definitely get away with more than one of these dresses. I'm not sure how practical it would be for you with the slim skirt, but I would love to see it. :) We are both in PA, I wonder how close? ;D

Thanks for the kinds words, everyone! I added a link to the pattern cover in the pattern description. For some reason my pattern picture has been subsumed by the current simplicity 2331, which is less watercraft appropriate.

Your dress is so cute! :) I googled the cover image for this pattern and I see what you mean about the big smiles and tilted chins :)

Very, very cute! Nice work deciphering the vintage pattern, I'm not yet brave enough to attempt one!
