"I had so much trouble finding plus sized dresses that both fit and flattered my figure until I started sewing my own. Linen is now my go-to all year round. This is a Vintage Vogue pattern, can't go wrong with a circle skirt, and the linen has great drape!"
Voting has ended!
I love how flattering the dress design is and the color choice is awesome!
Thanx Elizabeth! The 50s were kinder to pear-shaped ladies like me :-)
Beautiful drape. Did you hand or machine sew it?
Well fit and flattering! I would love to have one!
Thanks Deb! I mostly machine sewed it, but the black 'harness' part had to be attached to the bodice via hand sewing :-) I've been meaning to embroider it by hand, but couldn't get around to it before contest-time.
This dress is beautiful!! it looks very flattering on you!!
such a flattering look !
Perfect summer fun dress and with a jacket or lace shawl you can wear it on cooler days.
Very nice use of contrast to draw eye upwards. Love the flow of the material!
This is amazing! So flattering and yet so comfortable looking AT THE SAME TIME!
Very flattering - and who doesn't love a spinny skirt!
Beautiful dress, very flattering.
I love the twirl and drape! You look gorgeous!
