Looks beautiful on you! I wouldn't have thought have using this pattern with shiny fabric. It works.

When I pulled up your gallery pic my first impression was 'simple elegance'. Then I read the review and found it is Walmart $1.50 fabric. Indredible! Boy do you have the talent for picking the right pattern for the fabric (I checked out your Blog). I wish my Walmart had decent $1.50 fabric. Maybe they do and I just don't have your talent for knowing what will make it work. I'll say it again...this is simple elegance, you look ready for a really nice night out.

Your dress is beautiful! I love that the fabric was such a bargain-you'd never know it-it looks very pricey!

Your dress is so much prettier than the one on the pattern. Your mystery fabric does wonders for that dress you look very pretty in it.
