Style 2 was sewn (complete with pom-pom trim) for Minnesota History Center's 2008 RetroRama, which I wrote about here. Many compliments were received on the dress through the evening from others in attendance, my favorite by an older gentlemen who likely was a young man in the late 50s. Runway photo of dress here.
