This dress is SO gorgeous, Kristen!! The style suits you perfectly, and I love all the quintessential 1930s details!
Oh, and just for the record, you made my day with the right-side-zipper admission. Because I just did that very thing on a dress I made recently. So thank you for that! ;)
Lovely job! And I love the back buckle - I have yet to do that on anything but it looks so fun!

This house dress is so charming and looks like it would be so beyond comfy! I also love the fabric print, it is so sweet! I can't wait to be done with the musical costuming so that I can get back to vintage sewing! I think I need to add a house dress to my "to do" list! Great inspiration!

Oh, Esther, that is funny. At least we know we're not alone in our face-palm moments! I wasn't sure about the back buckle at first, but I've decided I like it.

Thank you, Gina! Yes, I like the fabric print too. It's the sort of fabric I always try to find since it has a print but it's subtle enough that the print doesn't disguise the dress details. I prefer most patterns best in a solid fabric, but on the other hand I'm always finding prints I love...and then have a hard time finding a pattern to pair with the print! It's a hopeless case.

Lovely classic style and it is inspiring me to get on with my own ventures into 1930's sewing this year. :) Love the unique style with the back belt and all.
