Last week you were divided on Anne Miller’s dance routine frock from Easter Parade. Did you rate it as a dance dress? As a pretend historic costume? Most of you loved the stockings, but the reaction to the rest was mixed, balancing out at an unimpressive 5.9 out of 10. Poor Anne.
I usually present outerwear as Rate the Dress options, but since you loved Anne’s stockings so much, it occurred to me, why not present underwear? Or at least informal wear? And someone requested an autumn themed Rate the Dress (since it is autumn in NZ), and what is more snuggly and fall-y than a warm, cozy robe for curling up in in front of the fire with an apple and a good book?
Something like this perhaps?

Here is a detail of the pattern:
What do you think? Just the thing for lounging around the house and impressing the husband, or a guaranteed way to drive him out of the house? And is paisley wrapper and paisley petticoats just too much paisley (is all paisley too much paisley) or perfectly paired?
