The final result looks wonderful. Great little black dress. I am sorry you had problems with the V Neck stitch and all those narrow hems. I agree with you that on certain types of jerseys, it is so difficult. Thank you for reviewing all those details and catch 22.

Cindy, this beautiful little LBD is a real show stopper on you, from each and every angle. Despite your instructional difficulties, your construction appears flawless. I hadn't noticed until today what gorgeous arms you have and this dress draws attention to this very fine attribute. Quite lovely, Lily
