What a great review and an awesome top. Thanks for being so detailed in your writeup. And yes, I agree, the Anna Maria Horner voile, and all the Free Spirit voiles, are amazing! I stash that stuff.

Such beautiful fabric. It really suits the style of your blouse. Sorry you couldn't enter it in the contest but it is beautiful none-the-less. Thanks for the tip about 1940's patterns suiting square shoulders.

If you could do a clockwise, 1/4 turn on your photo and resubmit it, I'd like to have a better look at your work!

I hope you leave the sleeves, which I assume are the short version. I think the dress would look a bit unbalanced without them.

I love that fabric; wishing I had picked it up when I had the chance. Hey, you can always take the sleeves off AFTER the contest. Only you will know then!

Rats!! Thank you for replying :)

I'm unable to PM you. Leaving the sleeves off would be considered a "major" change to the pattern; thus making it ineligible. Let me know if there are questions and I can't wait to see it!

Oh gosh, I know what you mean about "multiple steps completed at once", I just finished a pattern from the early 50's and it literally had the bodice completely assembled in one step 0.0. Good work! It looks very summery. :)

I love sewing vintage! Thanks for the review. I think I have this pattern in my stash and will definitely give it a try after seeing your progress.
