  1. Your dress is fabulous. I can see what Dawn meant about the dresses being similar. That was a great film, Got to love a bit of …… French cinema. 🙂 I like Ms Ardent’s dress too. Nice button holes. All that shaping is well worth the effort. It is a gorgeous outfit and a very nice bunch of patterns all round. Xx

  2. Very nice, both with and without the peplum. Would pegging in the hem of the skirt a couple of inches make it too ‘va va va voom’ (or too tricky to walk in) for your needs?

    1. I think pegging it would take it out of the practical for me at least. Having no bum or hips, this straighter line works better, unless its a stretch fabric. The pleat is lovely and generous, so no worries about splitting or flashing from a seam or vent either!

      1. Makes sense to me! I hope the fabric doesn’t prove to be too warm to wear, as it is a perfect dress for work. You could always pop over here for a bit of Canadian weather; if it’s not freezing outside, then the air conditioning in my office is set cold enough to hang meat. 😀

      2. Lol that would be great for me- most of our fancy new classrooms have windows that don’t open, and no aircon, just weird ‘scoops’ on the roof which channel a tiny trickle of air through miles of pipes to get to you. By that time, it flops out of the pipes with a disgruntled sigh and lies on the floor. Useless. I spend most of my day pink faced and gasping for air. COmplaints do no good at all.
