What a terrific-looking dress. The beauty of prints is that they hide any imperfections we might perceive. Nice call on adding crystals. That's one of the benefits of sewing our own clothing, there's always something we can change or add to achieve the finished result.

I like your choice of fabric better. This is a lovely dress on you. I often think of trying to test run more difficult sewing on a less visible side too.

Thank you for a very helpful review--this dress looks wonderful on you. In fact, if you were kneeling on a window seat, you would give the model a run for her money!

Hi, mochimo. The dress fits snugly around the hips and bottom, so using a stretch fabric will probably work best.

Thank you for the review, your dress is beautiful! A friend wants me to make this for her but when I saw the points i was a bit worried. I'll def do a muslin first!

Lovely dress! Do you think it would work in a non-stretch fabric?

Gorgeous dress! Thanks for the tip, too. I am definitely going to buy the items listed and give it a whirl. Tracing is something I loathe!

I have been drawn to that dress since I saw it. It looks great on you. When I get better at fitting my figure, I might try it.

Lovely dress! I'm going to have to keep the rhinestone cover-up tip in my bag of that idea :)

Great dress - looks like a good fit from here and the print hides any sewing imperfections. I like the seaming details of this design, and I think they would look great in a solid colour (but on the other hand, I have tried sewing points like that before and I know it's not easy!)
