I like your dress very much! You did a really nice job with the center front slit and the way you aligned the embroidery. Maybe if someone else uses this fabric, it could be underlined to improve the stability and deter ripping. (I have ordered from ShopOnion several times and had no problems at all. English translation emailed within 1-4 hours, hard patterns received in under a week each time (East coast US). Someone on the web has started a translation of the Danish sewing vocabulary, but can't remember whom - sorry!)

Lamstu, Thank you for noticing the alignment, I took great care in doing that. Underlining will help, but I would still be concerned. You can hold the fabric between your thumb and forefinger and pull slightly and it shreads along the embroidery lines. The only thing I can do now is make a slip for it and hope for the best.

Looks good sewn up, but agree it needs the belt.

I like the low-key bohemian look, and I think it looks good with or without the belt.
