    Definition of a respectable, classy lady, yet still provocative. I know you were not attempting to upstage a friend (the bride) but, I just bet you had tons of compliments!

    This is fantastic. I love Mad Men and find the styles so inspiring. The fabric suits the dress perfectly.

    Hey guys, thanks for the comments!

    It’s a pattern, and old vintage Butterick one, but I had to alter it a bit around the shoulders and bust area, and then on the skirt. It’s stretch denim, so it could be tighter than the pattern originally suggested. I looked very HOT at the wedding!

    Gorgeous fabric, and such a great simple style. Did you create it yourself or use a pattern?

    Wow! This is a stunner. You will be the cutest guest at the wedding. I find Mad Men inspiring too, by the way. How great it would be if everyone dressed up like that for work.

    Stunning. I love this dress – the fabric almost looks like lace from a distance. It suits the style perfectly.
