Extremely pretty dress which very much flatters your shape. Your sash and netting underskirt have made this dress extra special and unique unto you. Lovely, Lily

Hi Sewing Susan, thanks for your compliment. It was really simple to add the net. I just made a lining (the pattern isn't lined, so I made a dress out of lining fabric and attached it to the facings, having removed the same amount from the top of the lining dress). Then I gathered a swathe of netting fabric together (I used two lines of gathering about an inch below the edge of the net) and then sewed that to the appropriate point on the hem of the lining dress. It's that simple. Takes some playing around to get the lengths right, but nothing too onerous. I am happy having curves, sometimes they can just become over-pronounced that's all :) Thanks for all the nice comments

Love it! Especially the fabric....I've used that same fabric and color for my god-daughter's prom dress. Very nice. The black netting is a great addition to the dress, too!!

very pretty. how did you make the netting underskirt? i'm in the process of making a similar dress now and it needs an underskirt.

There's no such thing as "too hourglass" says an envious rectangle shape:-) Beautiful!

Be proud of those curves, some of us would die for them! (I've no waist at all, nearly as wide as my hips unfortunately!) Gorgeous dress on you, you looked superb!
