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?"

The encouragement is so overwhelming! Thank you all ladies. I'll shove these compliments in the hubs face for sure! Glad to hear I am not the only one with a husband issue.

Isn't it ridiculous how the things that husbands say stick in one's head? Well, I love the combination of this collar and color. It looks beautiful!

Wow fab dress and colour you look more like a Bethany than a Flo. :P

I agree with Trish, more Twiggy than anything.  And actually, I kind dig a Flo the Waitress inspired look (I have a pinstriped Dickies dress that is exactly that).  PS - my mom's name is Florence (Flossie), and she dies a little inside when the newly introduced insist on calling her Flo :)

Just imagine what we would all look like if we listened to our husbands! This dress is fabulous and should be worn at every available opportunity!

I love the colour you've chosen and the collar makes the dress look so fresh ! :0)
