One word: smokin'! That is a great dress, especially with the pegged skirt alteration. Your rendition makes me take another look at this pattern.

@CissieW Thank you! I used a black Stretch Tricot Knit for the Lining

@Deepika Thank you! I cut the smallest size and still took out about 1" of ease in the bodice. The size 6 fit fine for the skirt portion ;-)

Definitely looks better on you than the envelope picture! And I don't know you stand up in those shoes, let alone walk.

Gorgeous dress! Thanks for mentioning the bagging method.

Re Becca said...
Fabulous! Do you know the fiber content of your ponte? I'm always on the hunt for a good ponte, but they are not all created equal. You make 'bagging' sound so simple!

Beautiful! Thanks for explaining the bag method of attaching the lining. A tut of the last step would be fabulous!
