Great pattern & dress! I have this in my stash, too. Thanks for the clear elastic tip; I hate facings on knits!

Your dress is gorgeous on you-the color could not be more perfect! Great job and thanks for the neckline elastic tips!

You look so pretty in your new dress! thanks for the tips on the clear elastic. I just did this on a jacket but didn't think to use the 3/8" which would have been perfect since the sas are 3/8" to begin with!! Great review!

Really beautiful dress! Your technique for securing the neckline turned out perfectly and the overall fit is fabulous. Lovely color on you too.

Cindy, very beautiful dress in a color to which I'm hopelessly attracted; can't resist any shade of orange and you look Killer in it! Great review and creative use of your beading foot. Working with clear elastic normally gives me hives, but I've bookmarked your review and will definitely give your technique a very serious attempt. It could change my approach to gaping neckline. Thanks for this insightful review and these lovely photos. (Oh, and what a stylish home you have, too!) Lovely, Lily

Beautiful dress. And thanks for the tips on applying clear elastic to eliminate gaposis -- this is always a problem for me with this style.

That is a stunner of a dress-what a wonderful color on you. Good info on the elastic-that method would work with a SM too?
