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.

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 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!

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

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

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!
