Wow, what a gorgeous dress!!! I absolutely love the details; they are very different from the norm but yet perfectly ladylike and vintage. You did such a beautiful job on it, and I love the fabric choices! Can't wait to see it on you at some point! :)

Thank you, Esther! You're right - it is different than the common vintage styles, but still very 1950s, which makes it fun. :-)


This is utterly fantastic! I love the shape, details, and variety options you made! Fabulous work!


Absolutely beautiful dress!


The dress is worth the effort because you can change the front panel. I really like that option. :) Ladies had less clothes back then but looked so elegant and pretty. Change the panel add different shoes, hat and gloves and one has a new dress...endless options!!

The half belt is an interesting detail. I see one probably would not want a separate full belt because the buttons are there. With the half belt, one looks prim and proper.

Hi Dee! Yes, I love the versatility of the front panel being interchangeable. I think we could learn a lot from vintage wardrobes when ladies had less clothes as you mentioned but were so creative with ways to wear them.
