I had already voted, and just saw this today, such a nice choice of pattern to match to your bedsheet. You look wonderful and the photo shoot is great as well. Good job.

I have seen a few tutes on the web for a cloche hat as well, but yours is the perfect accessory to your dress.

drop waist dresses are more of a 20s thing in my head, but never the less this is an excellent use of materials and the colors and contrasts are very fetching!

What you have there is a beautiful 1920s dress (1960s and 1920s fashion is very similar, and it's no wonder since both eras were similar in terms of political changes with women's rights). In the 30s the waistline moved up to the natural waist or above, and the dresses became more shaped, often from bias cutting. They also did away with the cloche in terms of the latest fashions. The fabric is very 30s though, and the V neck as well. Maybe your dress would be smack dab on 1930?

Either way, very cute!
