Yike, that is expensive fabric. It really is a pretty dress (although I agree, that style is best for straight figures). At least on the dress form, it looks spectacular. Very clever on the belt. (Oh, and I'll 2nd the muslin comment. If my fabric is more than $10 a yard, I make a muslin!)

Hi Jolet: you did not mention making up a sloper before cutting into your expensive fabric. I have found "testing" the pattern is well worth the time & effort. The professional do as well.

I think you should let it rest for a week or so and then look at it again. It looks really nice.

I'm sorry you had such difficulty with the pattern. The jumper looks terrific on the dress form--love the color.

I would never have imagined the negatives, it looks fabulous, and I can just see this with some knee high boots!

Oh, how sad this didn't work out for you. The fabric is gorgeous and the pattern is cute. Sometimes you just don't know until you make it. Oh, well.

I know how frustrating sewing like this can be! Your jumper looks very nice and I hope you aren't so put off by your troubles that you won't wear it.

It looks georgeous on the form so you overcame your difficulties well. Too bad you don't like wearing it.

Too bad you had so many problem with it. I love this pattern and plan to make it again soon in a purple wool twill.
