Very elegant dress on you..simple and classy. Think I'll have to give it a try but will use rayon doubleknit. You are so petite! And removing some of the fullness sounds good to me.

Gorgeous dress and I love how you have taken out the extra fullness in the skirt.

Really elegant - looks gorgeous. I like your idea about taking some of the width out of the skirt too. It looks very chic.

elainemay I love your reveiws especially because I have a daughter who is a similar size so it is great to see which patterns might look good on her. You are very inspiring!!!

Another great dress Elaine. Your skills in grading down in size and creating a sleeker silhouette are inspiring. Now I'm ready to buy that pattern.

It's gorgeous! Seriously, and where on earth do you get wool doubleknit? I am drooling over this dress!
