My Dress Is Finished!

I'm so excited - I've finally finished sewing my vintage Simplicity 7705! I wore it all day yesterday. Khloe styled it with the scarf and shoes because I didn't have quite enough fabric for the tie belt. Want to see?
I love this dress. I spent some time on fabric.com and found at least a dozen fabrics I want to use for more versions. It fits well and my family all thought it looks good - even with the flashes of cleavage. I know there's a post somewhere in the blogisphere about preventing wrap gapes, but I can't find it and, really, a flash of boob never hurt anyone, right? I'll fix it eventually. Khloe thinks I should shorten it a bit. What do you think? I can't decide. She also thinks that boots don't go with dresses, silly girl! This is my first project for the Vintage Pattern Pledge. It's been fun seeing what people are making. There's even another black wrap 7705! Next week is spring break for the kids so I should have another new dress to share. Yay for no alarm clock! I'm sure the cat will make sure that I don't sleep too late - he likes to be fed pretty early or he thinks he's starving. Poor spoiled baby. Okay, that's all for today! Have a wonderful weekend!

I like the length as it is, it suits you and goes with the shoe style. The scarf detail is great, perfect colour to go with the dress.

That is a wonderfully classic frock!
Ha, I think I last did square dancing at school, when I was about 12! My G's parents used to go regularly, but I wasn't interested...I just like the frocks!

I love it! I think the length is perfect - if you must shorten it, only go an inch or two more, and I completely agree with you about the cleavage ha! Great job, I can't wait to see another version!
