I feel like this dress has some vintage flair, which I love. The Denyse Schmidt fabric only adds to that. I'm definitely pleased with the outcome. I'm pretty sure I'll make it again...maybe in the tunic length. That could be fun!
I had to learn a lot of new skills with this pattern: buttons, buttonholes, a collar, working with a placket. But I muddled through and think it all turned out pretty good.
Adelaide-approved. By just undoing the bottom button, the dress was very bike-friendly, although I did flash a little leg in the process.
