Very pretty! I love it in the navy eyelet (its not *too* risque, LOL!).

Great looking dress, I made the top from this pattern. If your white interfacing is showing through, trying using a navy or black marker and coloring them in. That works great for dark colors.

That looks very pretty! If you do want to line it I think a light blue would be pretty. A navy lining would make the eyelet disappear somewhat and a nude color would just make it look like there was no lining at all at first glance. Anyway it looks great on you!

Your dress is beautiful. A slip will fix any modesty issues. I'm really impressed with how nice you got the bodice fit - it is perfect on you!

Nice dress. I'm not sure how I missed your original review but I'm glad I found it now.

Well, a slip will solve the modesty issue, or perhaps you can add some lining. Pretty dress. I reuined a top by using interfacing that is too heavy once. When in doubt use sew-in interfacing instead of fusible; that's available in any color you want (just buy some batiste or china silk or even use the same fabric).

I love your dress. It's very classy. The top in this pattern was on the cover of Sew Stylish a couple of months ago. They sewed the pleats down a few inches to minimize bulk. You might try it on a muslin to see how far down you would need to sew the pleats.

This is so adorable and elegant!

V cute dress on. I don't think it adds as much "bulk" as you might think. BTW, it's not too late to line the skirt portion of that dress, if you become uncomfortable wearing it.

Beautiful dress. I like the navy eyelet - just a bit unexpected.

Your dress is very pretty & looks great on you. I love the navy blue eyelet too.

This is so pretty! I love it. For interfacing eyelet, you can use a fabric in the same color and baste it to your fabric like it's a sew-in rather than a fusible interfacing. Navy organza would worked in this case, I think.

This dress looks beautiful! The eyelet is gorgeous. You can go get some navy lightweight cotton (batiste or something) and make yourself a slip pretty easily with a simple elastic-waist skirt pattern...

Love your dress! I have this pattern and look forward to making it. I will chose my fabric carefully after reading your review. Thank you!

Nice dress! I love eyelet fabric, but for some reason i'm scared of it. I don't know why -- afraid of showing something off to the public that I really don't want seen, I guess. lol
