I have been following this thread on Dress a Day and rostitchery. All sorts of figure types have been making this dress and it looks great on all of them. I may even get in on the action. I know my daughter-in-law will as soon as I show her the thread. I do feel the elastic is necessary, if only to keep the hem in place. I would also let the hem hang out for a couple of days to see if it needs to be trimmed, but that seems to depend on the firmness of the knit fabric used. This is too cute.

:-). Oh, forget about the waisband elastic, haven't you heard about 'the new cleavage' :-)?

Thanks for showing us all the different ways to wear this. I just bought some $1.50 cheapo poly from Joann to experiment as you did.

This is one of the best, most wear-able versions of this I've seen! Very nice job!
