What a joy that you finished the dress in this gorgeous brocade. Very festive! Brava!

Lovely dress and fabric. I agree, multi-sizes are much easier. You did great with it, though.

Therisa you could have made your FBA to the side panel in the same way as one is done on a princess style. It's very easy and would leave the the armhole intact. I really like the colors and how you did your own interpretation of such an ethnic outfit.

I've always wanted to try this pattern. It turned out beautifully. Enjoy wearing it!

A striking and distinctive dress. I've been wondering about this pattern myself.

Thanks for the suggestion, I will look into the Afghan Dress modifications indeed!

On the Folkwear site, there is some infor on how to upsize the Afghan Nomad dress. Perhaps you could use this info to upsize the rectangular portions of this dress, as well. I made their Syrian dress (reviewed on this site) had to upsize it as well. I find the Folkwear patterns inconsistent: some are well-thought out, some not.
