I tried this in a slinky and had very poor luck--the heaviness of the fabric distorted the neckline, even with stay tape. Yours looks great--I may try it again in another fabric.

I have tried to make the picture bigger, but it becomes so distorted that you can't see anything. So sorry! Next time I'll have DH take the pics.... :(

Can you make your pic larger - a bit hard to see but from what I can this looks good! Nice review.
