Well I'm a little late, aren't I? Lovely dress, so simple but stylish. Aren't you smart seeing what could become of a simple slip pattern. I think I might've found a source for a foldover velvet elastic - not sure about the brand, though. Does this look like the right stuff -

Barbara, you look beautiful in your lovely dress. What a great idea to take the slip pattern and use it as a dress! Thanks for the reminder about fold-over elastic (FOE). It's a great binding. I noticed that Sewzanne's has FOE and they are a PR merchant.

Haven't seen a review from you in a while - nice to see one. Great dress. And you could even make a slip from that pattern! ;)

Wow! Using a slip pattern for a dress, terrific idea. Wonder if slinky knit would work. I've got a very large pc and was looking for a pattern to use....hmm, might try this. Thanks for the review. Viv

There is a Mokuba store on 39th St. in Manhattan. I'm sure you wouln't have to buy a whole roll, although there might be a price break for the roll.

Johsew, the fold over elastic is manufactured by a Japanese firm called "Mokuba". I got it from a friend over a year several 10 meter rolls of different colors. I just did a quick internet search and at this time, could not find any sellers offering this item... I tried M & J Trim and some other online sellers. Perhaps a more determined searcher than me would be successful in finding it. Diligent seekers may find it helpful to know that this is by Mokuba, inventory item 4654, It comes in rolls of 10 meters. The ribbon is 18 millimeters in width. If you do look - let us know if you find it anywhere!

What a great looking dress. Who would have thought this was a slip pattern? I love your ingenuity. Great job.

I *love* your shoes! The dress looks great too.

Beautiful! Where did you find the black velvet FOE? I want some!
