    I definitely agree! I’ve been keeping it on my dress form just to look at! Although, I did wear it out to a burlesque show last night and they had me come up on stage to show off! So flattered!

    I have got to say, this dress was worth the effort. I made it from the Vintage Vogue Model 1954 pattern and such beautiful fabric I found at JoAnn’s on clearance. I used vintage red buttons, and a …
