Thank you for your review. I am going to be making this in March 2011 at a sewing retreat. I wish I could see your pictures the links don't work.

I would love to see the finished product! I couldn't access the photos!

I've been holding onto this pattern, a little afraid to attempt it. Your review has given me courage, and it will be one of the next things I sew! Thank you!

I love the dress! I'm systematically trying to sew all of the Vintage Vogue patterns (at least the ones I like) myself! Do you think the pattern would work well for the orphaned silk velvet I have sitting in my stash? It drapes well but still has body, but it can be very finicky to sew.

Your dress is just beautiful. I love the color on you. The style is so interesting and classy. Very nice!

I've had this pattern for a while and am considering pulling it out and making it so I'm glad to find your review. I have a few questions however - is there a lining? I can imagine that a knit wouldn't need a lining, but I can't see that bodice in a silk crepe without one... I like the idea of using a knit in it (maybe a sparkly slinky) but I want to try to make the pattern in the intended fabric. I don't know, maybe the pattern envelope intimidates me too much...

Beautiful dress, and I add my agreement to all others who like the hemline. Works wonderfully for you. All your work has given you a true designer-style dress. Congratulations!

This is exactly how Vogue should be selling the Vintage Vogue pattern line! A modern & stylish echo of the past.

Lovely dress. I even like the pleats in the soft fabric. And the shaped hem was an inspiration. Very much a designer dress look!

Absolutely gorgeous in every way.

I think your shaped hem and fabric choice are quite wonderful. It's sort of like Donna Karan fell through a wormhole and landed in 1948. I love vintage, but I especially love wearable, modern interpretations of vintage. Yours is stunning.

Wow Judy, this dress is really fabulous. Even though you chose a vintage pattern this dress is very En Vogue.

What a beautiful style and it really flatters your figure. I've been trying to visualize the vintage vogue patterns, and after seeing yours, I'm inspired.

How elegant! You can't tell from the picture that the fabric was inexpensive so the dress really looks special as-is!
