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.

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

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!

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.

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.

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

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.

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.
