What are you waiting for, make more dresses. I can't imagine anyone looking better in this dress than you do. It appears to me that you work hard to look great, why not show it off!

The combination of the print and binding makes this irresistible. You look fabulous in it.

Beautiful dress - I am following closely in your foot steps - have pattern all cut out and ready to go but seem to always find another project - will get there. Hope my dress looks as nice as yours. Can I ask what pattern you used for your tie top little jacket

Re Becca: I used commercial binding on the armholes, extended the lining for the neckline and made my own for the hem!

Great looking dress! I actually have this pattern but haven't been pressed to get to it until seeing yours, I think it's the print you're using with the binding. The length and style are perfect for me, I love it!

Beautiful! If you were to only haveone dress, this would be it. Can I ask what kind of binding you used? Is it bias cotton binding from a package, did you make your own or is it Petersham?

Great dress, with or without the blouse! As a devoted wearer (and maker) of dresses, I hope you enjoy your dress.

It's chic and highly distinctive, and looks great on you. Well done.

Wow, looks great, especially after a 35 year hiatus! Hope this one inspires you back to sewing because the results are lovely

Love it! So pretty on you. I am about your age with similar body type. The one thing that gets me is lusting over all the sleeveless styles and knowing that, like you said, we have to wear a little top over them. I hope I have good arms again in heaven! : ) Great review.
