This is an absolutely gorgeous dress, Kristen!! I love floral dresses like this, and the ruffles make it even more beautiful.
Lovely job as always!!

Adorable dress, Kristen. And it looks so nice on you! I looked at the pictures and thought, "How DOES she do that? A dress like that, with the pattern and the ruffles and all, would completely swallow me!" But you look perfectly lovely.

Hope you had a nice Thanksgiving!

Huzzah!!! It looks beyond fabulous! I love the fabric you used...it is so pretty and feminine and works so well with the ruffles! Your gloves are awesome purple-y goodness!!! LOVE this new outfit!!

Thank you Esther, Leya, and Gina! I had a lot of fun making it.

My younger brother thought the dress looked like it had "paw prints" on it - that's a boy for you - so I'm glad you think it's pretty. :-)

I'm thinking I'd like to make it again in a solid color drapey fabric, like rayon, because then I think the skirt would look more like it does on the pattern drawing. We'll have to see if I get around to another version!


Gorgeous dress ~ I love how the ruffle at the neckline matched that trimming on your hat, it's very cute! ❤

The top photo is simply stunning! The dress is lovely, vintage patterns are so fun to sew, aren't they!

I must admit that my favorite part of the outfit are the gloves, they add a beautiful touch of color. This is definitely among my top favorites of all of the outfits you have blogged about so far!

You're right, Bonita! I hadn't noticed that the ruffling is paired on the hat. I actually had just grabbed a hat to take the pictures with, so it's nice to know it ended up coordinating!

Hi Annie! I'm so glad you like the dress. And I have to admit that one reason for making this print up was so I finally had something to wear those purple gloves with! Aren't they just gorgeous? 1940s detailing is just to die for. The top photo is my favorite as well...it was one of those lucky captures just as I was turning into the wind. Most of the pictures with wind didn't turn out so well. :-)
