With collar up.
Front skirt with seam tapes sewn at sides.
I'd love to make another one from this pattern with one modification: add a zipper in the back to allow easier dressing, one of those inserted in the middle center back, a few inches below the collar. As is, it is quite a struggle to put it on and off. Of course, loosing some pounds would be a great help.
Dava asked about the shoes I am wearing. Here is a close up of them. They are dark red patent leather high heels with silver buckles by Aerosol from several years back. Perfect for the vintage dress.
