    I think this dress is amazing! Nothing matrony here. Love the collar and waist details. Very chic.

    Not matronly at all! I would say sassy like Joan! I love the piping. I really lifts the dress out of being one colour. Superb job!

    Matrony??!! Oh no, not at all. If I had to describe this dress it I would say is more a sailor style than anything else. However, the dress is very stylish and elgant. And by the way it fits you great.

    Oh, what a pretty pattern! It has so many nice details and you added yours as well. I would use the word classy or the word vintage, not the word matronly!! The last world doesn’t describe this style in my opinion. However you call it, this dress is really chic and elegant!
