    Oh I LOVE it! I am always a sucker for gingham and for vintage patterns! Lovely job – and the “lone boob” (refer Ms. Gems comment below) looks exceedingly well fitted!!!! Thanks for mentioning the pattern number.

    Really nice. I love retro vintage patterns. I’m going to give this one a go I think! Good work on the lone boob picture too…

    I like the gingham you have chosen for that pattern! It’s not too big, so it doesn’t distract from the nice shape of your dress.

    Very nice! I especially like the neckline/shoulder, it’s very nicely shaped and quite unusual.

    It looks really lovely! Eye-catching and de-emphasized at one time, if you’d ask me. I like the fabric in combination with this pattern!

    This is very cute, and it compliments you well! I like how its reminiscent of a retro wiggle dress, yet not so flashy and “look at me!” Thanks for posting the pattern number, I might just have to track it down soon.
