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

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.

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

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

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.
