A stunning dress it looks lovely & outshines the surroundings too! The centre front zip a great idea - I am doing a dress currently with a side zip but would look much better with centre zip - your post came just in time for me. Your hair also looks great. your posts are always inspiring thanks

This is SUCH a gorgeous dress!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :D I absolutely love it!! The print is to die for, and I just love the classic style. You look so pretty in it too! Good job!

Hello Kristin, Your dress is beautiful - looks lovely on you! As I was scrolling through the pictures I was hoping for a close-up shot of the 'V' at the back! Very nice detail. I love how a fabric will yield in an unexpected way. I could see this dress in a soft, warm corduroy, as well, or maybe a wedding gown! The castle is amazing! I never knew it existed. Of all that you wrote I love what you said about the castle - 'It warms my heart to see the beauty and power of wealth used for good by a wise and kind person.' A breath of fresh air! Thank you!

Once more I enjoyed reading about your dress and the castle. I too never knew this castle existed. Thanks for taking us all along with you. The dress is very lovely as are you.

Lovely dress and castle! Beautiful fabric too. I have heard of Glen Eyrie from Bianca's blog and had hoped to see a vintage meet-up of you two together. :) How is your little boy? Is he a year old now?

Best wishes,
Dee

I've just spent the last few days binge reading through your blog and I love it! It's been very informative to hear all the good and not so good from your sewing adventures. I love all of your gloves too! I dress in vintage everyday (mostly 1930s) but I don't own any gloves (except winter ones). I guess I always imagine they will just get in the way and not be very practical. I might have to get at least one pair now. I'm also in love with the beautiful Idaho mountains in the background of a lot of your pictures! I followed you on Instagram as well. It looks like you were already following me (decodecade).

Cindy - yes, this pattern could be very versatile! I can see it in satin and floor length for a formal dress, and it would be nice in a soft wool or tweed for fall street wear too.

Dee - he will be 1 in September already!

Kate - so glad you found me! I'm happy you enjoy the blog, the Idaho mountains, and that my successes and not-so-successful projects can be helpful. I used to wear gloves more often, but lately mostly just wear them for photo shoots or reenactments since they are so impractical with a toddler around. I have a huge collection though, so I have to give them more outings!
