I had to smile because I made this dress in the exact color, stretch satin polyester. In fact I made it a second time in a dark dusty pink. You're right the pleats at the neckline take a little time but can be mastered. You look great and you did a beautiful job.

Because of this great review (and photo) I went and bought the Vogue version of this pattern (they were on sale) and some purple matte jersey to make this dress today! I also live in IL so we may have to coordinate our public appearances. LOL ;)

My first thought was HOW CLASSY but I guess I was not the first to think it. Sorry to repeat the others!

Would you be able to post of photo of the FBA? I would like to make this dress but don't know how to increase the bust :)

I need to try this pattern again. I picked the wrong fabric the first time and it snagged on the needle. Never picked up the pattern again. Your version makes me want to!
