Stunning. Is the fabric from Australia's Spotlight?

Very nice! What I do if the neckline is too low is to wear a cami underneath.

Beautiful dress and photo Cody !!! I am glad you managed to solve the neckline problem with the clear elastic. Definitely make more of this one. Congratulations on writing your first review !!!!! It has prompted me to dust off this pattern and make the dress.

Congratulatoins! What a pretty result! Nice choice of pattern and fabric. It made up nicely and is quite flattering. I think everyone is searching for that perfect pattern and you have certainly found your! A nice deep red would be great for the holidays.... OK, time is short, but I bet you would look stunning in a deep red.

Very pretty and the fit appears to be perfect. I am taking note of the elastic tip for the neck edge.

Great review. I too have had issues with stretching and gaping necks and used the elastic as you have. Dress looks good on you and well done for your first review.
