    Beautiful dress! I like that you added sleeves and the belt is a nice touch. I am currently making the coffee date dress and you have inspired me to add my own flair! Great work!

    I love the dress but you got me at the photo styling. I’m suggesting to the forum that they should have a vintage-inspired photo styling contest. I’ve noticed a trend for nostalgia in the patterns and creations of late and here’s a perfect specimen to support the suggestion. And the hat! Don’t get me started on the hat. What a superb creation; magazine worthy.
