My very first vintage design

A few weeks ago I posted here about my first foray into dress design and drafting. This was an exciting leap into the unknown but I did know that my designs would be vintage inspired; I was thinking something 40s inspired for the simplicity.

So with my tutor I came up with this vintage inspired tea dress -
And after many weeks of drafting, fitting, sewing, unpicking, more fitting, more unpicking I give you this -
What d'ya think? Has it worked? Is it rocking that 40s vibe? You're all so knowledgeable about this stuff so I'd love some feedback - really I would. Please come on over to my blog and have your say... or comment here. Thanks!
