Yes, the dress is a winner for you, very nice looking. I really appreciate the helpful review. The one quarter inch elastic for the waist concerned me, so I am glad to hear your suggestion to go up to a wider width. I bought some three-eighths just in case. Since my skills at serging elastic onto a seam are still building, I will try the long zigzag as you suggest.

Very classy dress - I'd never have thought it from the pattern.

Cute dress! At first glance I thought that the neck scarf was a generous cowl neck. I luv the look! Great job

Perfect for the winter. I love the length and the neck scarf with the dress. Thanks for the review on alterations you needed.

Great job, Ann! I really like how yours turned out in the lighter fabric, and the scarf is a great touch. Very pretty!

Lovely dress, Ann! It's a flattering style and will also look terrific in the rayon!
