I love the color mustard for Fall attire. I especially loved this vintage Simplicity pattern, with the Peter Pan collar, I found in my stash. Put the two together and you get 'Flo'. That's what my hubs called me when I finished the dress and put it on. He said I looked like a waitress named Flo. This negative remark has stuck in my head all week. I just can't shake it. I don't know if I can wear this dress again. Maybe in a more monotone color just to avoid the peanut gallery. Hopefully my husband will learn to keep the jokes to himself next time I ask "How do I look?"

Hahaha I can absolutly relate! But nevertheless it's a lovley dress and you should wear it. I stopped asking my husband "How do I look" and asked him to think about a original joke at least when I showed him he last blouse I sewed :-)

No way, it is super cute. It is hard, though to wear a peter pan collar and not feel a little out of the ordinary.

You look so cute, not like any waitress I've ever seen, actually your look is so 60's - like something Twiggy would have modelled - wear it with pride!

"Waitress" did not even enter my head- The mustard is awesome and the collar sweet, in summary, you look FAB.  I say wear it chica!

I think it looks adorable! And not too waitress-y. My husband knows not to make those comments anymore - it only took a couple and I never let him live them down. :)
