    VERY cute! Which pattern number is this?

    PS, the first pic looks like you have no feet! ;)

      Haha! It does look like I am footless! I’ll have to get my hubby to do a better photo shoot with me :). The pattern number is B5033. It was probably the most fun I’ve had making a dress because the skirt was so full and fun to work with. Let me know if you give it a try!

    The fabric did you proud.

    The accessories furthered the look.

    The illustrations for those vintage patterns are so compelling, but one wonders how they will actually look. You are workin’ it, for sure. Great job! Holiday fun will be all yours in that dress!
