Absolutely beautiful! It definitely evokes the same feel as the Grace Kelly dress, and I love your wrap blouse!

I think this is one my favorite things you've made! I love everything about it. Should I ever have an opportunity to wear such a fancy gown, I'd love to have one like it!! Such a classy style. Perfection.


Very lovely, wish you had included a photo of the high tea gathering.
Love, carol


How smart you made this in two pieces! I'm working on formal dress but was thinking two pieces would be the better option. Maybe someday you will find a blue fabric to match the skirt.

Good job re-creating Grace Kelly's outfit!

Never heard of Golden Age Hollywood shoes. Do they run true to size? Are they all leather?

Happy, Healthy New Year!

Hi Dee,

This shoe was recommended to order a half size smaller than you usually wear, so when following their advice I would say it's true to size. They only have a few styles, however, that I would consider reproductions of any accuracy.

How lovely! I think your interpretation of Grace Kelly's dress came out wonderfully! And, I can relate to the struggle of finding things you can nurse in. I'm in that same boat right now!
