That dress is very flattering to you. I like the print, and I'm going to bet it qualifies as "diagonal". If so, and pattern envelopes often include a warning about using iron certain designs, you'd have started drinking if you tried to match that plaid. It was actually a good design move to use the FOE, it pulls the whole thing together visually.

Very, very nice! I've not used the FOE yet nor the wonder tape and it sounds interesting. Love your work!

Thank you for your compliments every one! I work it to work (both of them, actually) and it was quite popular. With the initiated AND the laymen, a sure sign of a winning FO, don't you think?

Nice dress! You have really nailed the right proportions for a petite, perfectly balanced! Thanks for the idea to use fold over elastic as a trim.

I love the plaid with the design lines. and the FOE. Gotta get some! Beautiful dress on you :-)

Love the touch of using the FOE! I need to remember what a great notion that is more often. In my opinion, bias projects are exempt from plaid matching.
