Like what you have done with this, houndstooth is always so classic. I'm surprised not more people have reviewed this, maybe the less than inspiring fabric choices on the pattern envelope has something to do with this

Love your dress. A great tip on using the black fabric for lining the yoke..very smart. Is your nude tricot lining available online? I have seen some really nice stretch lining on EOS but it is quite costly..

You are a knockout in this dress, Lori! Love the idea of it in a knit. I have so many leftovers I can imagine using for this.

Wow. Lori, that dress looks wonderful on you. Love it with the pink jacket too. Those points sort of scare me, but what do you think might happen with black leather inserts?

I'm surprised it's out of print, too. I had seen a peplum top on in November or December that had a similar bodice style, and was planning on adapting this pattern at some point. However, it seems like the major pattern companies might be retiring patterns pretty quickly these days. I noticed that two Vogue top patterns that aren't really old were retired, when I went to find out yardage information on them.
