Thanks everyone for the positive words!  Since making this and wearing it I've gotten a lot of comments to the tune of "how did you see the potential in that dress?"  I detail it a bit more in my blog at http://www.roadtotheheart.com/2012/07/vintage-revamp-blue-haze.html but basically:

  • 100% cotton
  • Peter pan collar
  • Princess seams
  • A-line skirt
All very promising qualities in a garment.  Thanks again  Smiley
