Oh how cool! It looks GREAT! I especially love the color. Thanks for your information on the slinky girl vs. glamour girl opinion. :)

Thanks everyone! DrSue, I'm not exactly sure how thick the rayon faille is, but a rayon fabric would be nice with this pattern, but I'd make sure it is heavy enough to drape and hang nicely. Although the bottom ruffle would give it a bit of weight. (I think you mentioned in another thread about leaving off the bottom ruffle).

Another fab review! Love your dress. Do you think this can be made up in a lighter weight fabric such as rayon faille?
