Nostalgic dress

The next project from book Simple Chic, by Machiko Kayaki is this cute nostalgic dress.
I really love the way it turned out.
Used fabric: dark blue rayon
Changes I made:cut about 15cm from the skirt length(it was almost maxi dress) added 2cm to the bodice length and sewed the belt lower.
The lace around neckline gives the romantic and vintage look,and I like it.
For all admirers of Machiko Kayaki patterns here is the fan club on Flicker.

I adore the Japanese sewing books. Your dress is as the book prescribes 'simply chic'.
