No, it's the Elaine Benes ("Seinfeld") dress! Well, maybe if it were 2-3 inches longer... check out the NY Times "Style" section today - the floral dress with granny boots and anklets is baaaack! http://www.nytimes.com/2010/08/19/fashion/19ELAINE.html

O.K., I'm so inspired by this dress (and blog) that I just picked up a beautiful antique White sewing machine - model 764 - and I'm going through the manual to figure out how it works. Thank you for sharing your projects and love of handcrafting clothes!!

Love it! And I love how your blog is evolving... the best part is seeing the pics of you wearing your creations "in real life" and hearing about the tricky parts. Really great work!

Feel better soon! I was watching "Evita" this week and saw SO many great 30s-40s dresses on Madonna and the rest of the cast. Thought of this blog - if you feel like drinking some OJ, putting your feet up and watching it, I bet you'll get some wonderful inspiration from the costumes!

PERFECT! You definitely should make more 40's-style halters, it's a very flattering style on you!

I know what you mean about the Novato estate sale 'spoiling' you... had that happen to me at a garage sale here in Denver this summer. Bought a whole box of antique silk Japanese Obi for $25, and another box full of antique Japanese pottery and china for $20. I am totally spoiled now. Enjoy your new patterns, fabric and vintage sweaters - they are wonderful!
