Dress #31 -- Vintage Vogue 9000 (1951 Reproduction)

And there's my vanity show for today. As for the pattern, I loved working on it. It was a little bit more involved than what I am used to, but it's good to expand your skills. There isn't a single Ooopsie hidden inside and I took my time making the pointed cuffs and hand sewing the collar (which the old me would have machine sewn and "hidden"!) No changes to the pattern were made and I fit perfectly into a size 14 right out of the package. I'm also rocking my new crinoline. I didn't realize how much of a difference it made.

With this project I learned to take my time because it pays off in the end. I am very pleased with this dress.
