What a beautiful dress! Thanks for the tips on the sizing and caution about slinky. I'm glad you chose it for yours, though. It's perfect and you'll be the belle of any of your holiday events!

I love this dress. I bought the pattern even though the smallest size is a bit big for me. I guess its going to be even more of an issue than I was fearing. Oh well.

Smashing results, I think you did a fantastic job with this! I don't think slinky is that easy to work with, JMO. I think I would like to try this pattern with the very drapey Sophia knit. Hmmmmm Thanks for this review. Hmmmmm! (LOL)

What a great dress. I recently looke at Maggie London's RTW dresses online, and this dress looks every bit as good as the ones I saw.

Thanks for the review. I have this pattern and was considering using slinky. Thanks for the heads up. I'm reconsidering my fabric choice now. You look great and I love the new hairstyle!

It definitely doesn't look like a dowdy black dress! Very nice.

The dress looks great in the slinky black as well as dramatic. NOT High School by any means.
