Notes Lovely faux silk suiting fabric which needs a very sleek style for which this pattern seems just right.
3/1/17: I used the lining as a toile for the dress. Almost perfect fitting, just had shave a bit off the upper hip area. My widest part is in the thighs, so I often have to do this.
I am really pleased with the way this dress is coming together.
19/1/17: At last my invisible zipper foot has arrived! Should get a few of my projects finished now.
Looks elegant. Fits perfectly.

I like this pattern. In combination with the fabric I've chosen, I've had more compliments than any other dress I've worn let alone made. Two complete strangers have approached me when wearing it to say they admired the dress.

I would love to see how this pattern works with a more curvy figure.
