    Adorable vintage dress. In my teens I was living in a country far away from North American civilization and my grandma used to make me dresses like yours. I had no idea I was wearing vintage. But I just loved them! In case you were wondering about the country . . . I lived in Nicaragua.

    Soo Cute. I love this. Personally, I cannot pull off the full skirted 50’s dresses, nut it looks amazing on you.

    You did ist absoluty perfect: Not only the pattern is original but also the way how you completed the dress and took the photo. What about the rose: it is bought or you made it on your own?? Ist die Rose gekauft oder von Hand gefertigt?

    Adorable! I love the rickrack finish! And the colour (although I’m not a very big fan of yellow) suits both you and the cut! So nice that you included a picture of the pattern – it’s hard sometimes to imagine how the final result will look like.
