I love the fine finishing details on this dress. The dress looks beautiful in green taffeta with plaid taffeta skirt and trim.
Lovely little classic. Enjoyed making it.
It's was great and easy I really enjoyed the pattern
I just finished making this dress, and I was able to more easily and quickly make it by ignoring the special french seamed sleeve, the armscye binding, and the invisible zipper. It looks just as nice, but without the hassle, especially with working with such a small outfit. For a larger garment, these would be nice touches, however it seems that with this outfit, it just makes it harder.
I just finished this in charcoal grey with embroidery accent yoke to coordinate with the Crabapples Classic coat made in Grey embroidered silk. Stunning!
