Advance 8898- 1950s dress in plaid

This is a late 50s Advance pattern featuring a stand-up collar and a very gathered back bodice. I think the back is my favorite part!

 I did the hem and sleeves by hand and made fabric-covered buttons. This was my first real attempt at matching plaid, so that turned out fairly well.

I cut the waist on the bias, but I followed the directions for the rest. More pictures on my blog, with the dog photobombing each and every one! Thanks for looking!
