Beautiful and super flattering on you! Thanks for all the details on construction!

Very beautiful, Erica. I think that was very wise to go up a size to ensure opulent draping, and its effect is most elegant. Love your addition of the narrow belt to emphasize your curves. Lovely, Lily

I wish your photo showed more detail- sounds like it's really unique and cute! One thing I apprecaite about your reviews is that we have some strong similiarities in our body shapes (tall and curvy), so you help me know which patterns will look good on me.
