Zowza! What a dress! Glad you were able to make a save, and I'm positive that wine helped- it always does for me.

Great photos! If you get a chance to edit your review though, the link to the back view photo has an extra "http//" in the address, which on my browser caused it to not find the photo.

That's a very nice dress. I love the fabric and the style and you look very pretty in it. Good idea about using the swimsuit lining instead of tricot.

Wine while cutting - bad. Wine while debating how to fix things - very good. Obviously, considering your result here.

Great job Erica. I always use swimsuit lining whenever I make something that requires a stretch main fabric, so much lighter than lining with another piece of knit fabric.

You are one gorgeous woman - and you know how to show it! This dress is a stunner. Love the sip'n'sew idea to alleviate frustration and clear the head. Great job - as always.

That was a great review! I really appreciate you including the information about the FBA because I am a beginner and I'm a little scared of trying it. Now I see what the pattern looks like when you do it and I am about ready to take the plunge and try it myself. Thanks!

I wish I had took heed to your advice, the bodice was narrow.

Love the color of the fabric. I've noticed your the only person that did the size i'm doing. If it's not a bother can you send pattern pieces 1, 2, and 3. I've misplaced those pieces and can't find them.
