I was the one who asked about your elastic technique so Thanks for the photo! I understand now.

Elke - here is a link to a pic of another dress I did. In this example, I put the casing below the waist seam. In the Vogue dress, the casing was placed above the waist seam. The Vogue directions call for a narrower elastic than the example I am showing here. (I think you will have to copy/paste the link to view the pic or look at my review of McCalls 6112 for a direct link)

I agree, this dress is a great look. Could you elaborate a bit on how you formed the casing for the elastic using the lining? I can't quite visualize what you meant when you said you "shifted the lining up when sewing the seam. Sounds like it might be a technique to know. Thanks!

Your daughter would look good in anything - but, that said, you've made her a beautiful and very becoming dress.

Love the pattern and fabric. Looks wonderful on your daughter. I especially appreciate the tip about the lining forming the casing. I always hate to add a casing piece. Great idea.
