This turned out absolutely beautiful!  I am making the same dress(not for a wedding) in a seafoamy green shantung. I was having a hard time understanding how they are explaining how to make the button hole. Any tips?

IKWYM re the buttonholes, I had a play with scrap making them the way described (bound self fabric iirc), but my friend preferred the machine buttonholes.
I figured the instructions probably were for the self fabric kind since it's a vintage pattern, and maybe most people in the 50's didn't have a onestep buttonhole function on their home sewing machines, so that style made more sense when the pattern was written. (I'm totally guessing!)
I used a round end buttonhole, and it worked well.
I do like the look of the self fabric buttonholes though.
But I'd say if you are struggling with them, that ime ordinary buttonholes work just as well.

Your fabric sounds divine, I hope you'll post the finished dress to Craftster.

Love Jeanette
