It sounds like you and I have to make the same pattern alterations - so this sounds like a winner to me. Thanks for the detailed review!

Your dress is beautiful. Lovely fabric and the fit looks very good. Thanks for a good review of a pattern I have been considering.

What a beautiful color. Love the style of this dress and it's very popular with the sewers here.

It looks great on you. I love the print of your fabric, also. I probably need to get this pattern, because it seems to look good on everyone.

Gorgeous! I wouldn't have thought to make it in a slinky knit. Great job.

This is very becoming on you. The drape of the skirt is beautiful.

Slinky is my new favorite dressy fabric. Your blue print is gorgeous. But you are right about the weight of it. Even with a two piece dress; if the skirt is long and full, slinky will pull down. I like your idea of using shoulder pads for support.

I love this pattern and now that I have seen how beautifully it makes up in slinky, I may have to make another one. What a lovely dress -- the color is great, too.

This is a lovely dress - the fabric is so beautiful. It looks like you got a great fit. I think I like your version better than the pattern photo!
