    It’s perfect! Don’t know if the piping was your addition or part of the original design but it’s the perfect detail.

    The lines in this are so pleasing – I just adore 40’s gathering.

    wow, this is gorgeous!! I’m drawn to the style of the 40’s, but I don’t know if I could pull a 40’s dress off. But you inspire me to try, this dress is so fabulous!
