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

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

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!

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.

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)

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.
