You look lovely with and without the belt. Methinks you are on a cruise...

Many thanks all of you. I too liked the fabric a lot which was why I was a bit disappointed in the dress. Thanks for suggestions about a belt. I think the real problem is the fabric, because of the crinkles and because there is quite a lot of it (when it is stretched) it tends to "bunch up" around the waist.

I think it is lovely, and a great use of a special fabric. I like it without the belt, but it is hard to tell how it looks from a side view. The belt is ok too. I agree with VivianZ about a skinny belt. how about a snake chain silver?? Great solution to the bra dilemma. Just a stunning dress with that fabric.

I love the fabric and the dress is nice. Perhaps if you made a skinny belt the grading in the fabric would show up more. Or maybe just run and elastic at the waist with no belt. You could always make a blouse and skirt.

I like it both ways, with and without belt. The fabric is beautiful and I like the bodice style too

I love the colours, and I think the dress works well with or without the belt.
