A dress using Leanne Marshall 1877. I made to wear to my son graduation today. I modify it slightly by removing the pockets. The dress has extended shoulders, partially gathered skirt, pleats and a zipper enclosed at back

I felt really cute in it and was very pleased with the outcome

Oh my in one of the pics my slip was slightly showing…please overlook. Thanks

      The moment I say the material I fell in love with it. Immediately a cute dress came to mind and I picture that it would look very expensive. Indeed it really looks rich
