Your dress is lovely! Black matte jersey is not an easy fabric to sew, and despite the pattern problems, your dress turned out great!

Lovely style and so versatile - I may have to put this pattern on my wish list.

Lovely dress - Thanks for that tip on leaving the center front flat and moving the gathers to the side - it looks great like that.

Oh, I love it!!! I have this pattern, too, but I'm not quite ready to sew it. What fun things you have done with this basic LBD. Quite versatile.

A great LBD, so versatile! I'm sure you'll wear this often.

I've made many "tops" from this pattern. Only one dress. I love it. I might have to make a little black dress now that I've seen yours. When it talks of pressing the seams toward the midriff, you press the top(bodice)seam down towards the midriff and the bottom(skirt)seam up towards the midriff. I like your idea of opening them for less bulk. Very nice LBD.
