    Stunning dress! I love how you added the red part! You must have stood out amongst all the other LBDs :)

      Thank you! It was my first try in sewing a dress. I was extremely worried that I was not going to be able to finish it on time.

    i’d disregared this pattern before because the picture on the pattern was so awful! But you’re exampe has made me reconsider. i’ve been looking for something suitable for a Mad Men inspired wedding I’m going to next year and i think this could be just the thing.

    You look stunning BTW.

    your rendition of this dress is very classic much classier than those shown on the pattern envelope :) That red sash makes it pop.
