    Fantastic dress! Great way to take an old pattern and redesign it as needed. Wear it well!

    Your dress looks good. I wish you had modelled it for us???? I have that pattern. Looking at the Fanny’s stamp on it, gives us some indication of how old it is….. My daughter yesterday asked for a maxi dress, hmm, might have to ‘borrow’ your idea. I really like how you added the cap sleeves.

      Thank you. Feel free to borrow! If you check out my blog you can see how I added the cap sleeves. I didnt model it because the print is totally over whelming on me. I know it would look amazing on someone tall, with a darker complexion.
