Thank you for this review. Your dress looks great. This pattern is next on my list, but I've been stalling because it seemed like a summer pattern. But of course it is appropriate for autumn, especially with the long sleeves. My envelope back is the same as yours, but the picture on the instructions inside is correct.

How very weird is that?! My pattern envelope shows ruching for the back views. As for the midriff, yes, my outer panel was smaller than the lining, too, but I have no trouble at all slipping the dress on. I used a buttermilk-ish type knit w/ good stretch but it sounds like yours should've worked, too. Weird. At any rate, I love your version. Silly me, I forgot this dress had a long-sleeved version...guess I'd better dig it back out for an encore, as I too love this pattern! Great dress Isabelle!

Your dress looks beautiful! The amount of stretch in different fabrics really varies. Probably the pattern envelope had a stretch guide on it for you to check your fabric against. Stretch velvet is not as stretchy as the thinner fabrics, but because of the ruching in the pattern design it looks like yours worked out fine.

Lovely, lovely dress that turned out well and looks beautiful on you. Funny about the back of the pattern envelope - I checked mine right away but it shows the ruching.
