Dr. Sue, I was wondering the same thing about short and curvy. I think the dresses short version would do the trick. Sexy but not overwhelming. Thanks for the review Amanda! this is now officially on my wish list!

Thanks guys. Long live Spandex House! Drsue, I would say this dress is curve-friendly and could easily be shortened. A funny story is that our waitress at dinner told us she bought a sewing machine for her husband, who now makes clothes for her!

Wow, wow, wow...New York goes to Vegas. How perfect! And exactly right for your coloring and complexion. Great job under extreme pressure, Amanda.

Great dress!!! Wonder if a short person with hip curves can wear this.

I've been wondering how a piece of tie-dyed stretch velvet in my stash would look in this pattern--you answered the question for me! You did a terrific job, and you look lovely!
