The dress looks AMAZING! I just love that 50's shirtwaist look and with pockets! YAY! The collar is really lovely too!
Oooo, I love the shoulder gathers and the collar and THE POCKETS!! This turned out lovely.
The pockets are my favourite part of the dress, they are so roomy. The pattern for the collar is really cute too. It stands up in the back and falls flat in the front. I should add another picture of the back view of the collar later. I totally recommend the pattern. I would just suggest cutting the lining skirt length a bit shorter than the pattern piece. Otherwise, it was a great pattern.
