Love it!!! Two questions, 1) did you interface the neckband, if so with what (fusible knit interfacing?) and 2) is it all all bra friendly?

I used a fusible knit interfacing. My material really needed it since it was thinish and slinky like on the backside (it behaved wonderfully with some interfacing though). As for bras - I would suggest a strapless!

Your dress is actually a lot nicer than the inspiration dress, I think. I just came home from the Joann's sale on Simplicity and I passed on that pattern, precisely because I couldn't tell what it would be like from the envelope. Now I'm kicking myself, and might go back tomorrow!

Great dress! I'd say you've given Macy's a run for their money. :o)

Looks great on you, and lucky that the pattern went on sale right after you found it.

Mmmm...What a groovalicious dress! The pattern illustration makes it look kind of sack-like, but your version and narcissa's are anything but. Terrific!!!

Very cute! I almost bought a dress like this today, but then I remembered I'd seen a pattern like it - good to see it turned out really nicely!
