Like the fabric, like the design. Empire and peasant designs often come off like maternity wear, not so here. Thanks for the tip about darts in the back skirt. The dress looks lovely on you.

Fabulous dress - it's a casual style but you have made it look very elegant - you look lovely in it.

Your dress looks great. I agree I like the addition of the darts to eliminate gathers.

I had dismissed this pattern as too "young" for my taste, but Wow! in that fabric it's quite elegant. Thanks for the review!
