FOE is fold-over elastic (usually the shiny binding like elastic on shirts). I do not have a source of it here, but some wonderful friends have supplied me with some of it from the US. It's usually the easiest and nicest neckline finish for knits (but it does have a learning curve =)

Oooooh, very pretty (the dress and your daughter! :-) I'll bet it feels gorgeous to wear. I'm still learning all of the acronyms used here...what does FOE stand for? Thanks for a great review.

I know you had somewhat of a struggle, but the outcome is fabulous. Your dd looks gorgeous in that dress.

This is cute. You may have to stabilize the neckline with fusible bias tape before sewing next time. I love the fabric.

What a great looking dress!! :D I love the color, and you did a great job with what sounds like very tricky fabric!

Your description of the fabric and its problems sound like stretch velvet..I still remember my one attempt. I congratulate you on a well done project..looks really nice.

It looks great on your daughter -- pretty, but comfortable.

The dress is gorgeous and has great lines. It will be beautiful in the green stretch velvet which probably won't be as stretchy as velour. But if you are worried about the neckline, try cutting a size smaller at the neckline only.
