  1. I love this! I am terrible at figuring out what pattern would most closely match something I’d love to wear, so you can imaging finding the MTL page is like finding a sack of cash. Or something.

    Thanks for using your Sewing Superpowers in the name of retro goodness!

  2. I have always wanted the coat dress from trashy diva. This pattern is a good representation of it!

  3. Oh I love this!! I love a good leopard print so this is right up my street! My last project were some Colette Clovers on leopard print. Thank you.

  4. Man. I so want to make this. I really don’t know if I could pull it off mind. Decisions decisions…

  5. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE this dress! Lately I’ve been working from home in my pajamas, I cant’ even fathom wearing such splendor at the moment! Just amazing—–
