This dress looks very pretty on you - good job for persevering with the slippery fabric and new techniques!

Very nice. I like the print, too. Charmeuse gives me pains, too. Even though I don't like to - I startch and iron it a bit just so it will 'behave" a little. I actually just made M6318 and had the same issue with the underarm. I made a simple "boobie band" for that problem until I make it again.

Your dress turned out marvelously and looks fabulous on you. This is definitely not a muslin! The fabric is beautiful and congrats to you for sticking with it slippery though it may have been. Great job, enjoy wearing the dress!

"Incidentally, I discovered that in French, French seams are called coutures anglaises, i.e. English seams." Funny! Also, thanks for the tip on the 'snip' fix with fusible backing, as I was pondering how to deal with the same mishap on a dress lining... Yours is a VERY pretty dress.

Thanks for your review. I was planning on sewing this pattern (but with sleeves for fall) and your insights are helpful. Love the fabric.

Thanks everyone! (and Scheryka, "boobie band" made me giggle. I'm so mature...)

Lovely! I made this pattern in a stiffer fabric and it was awful. Yours makes me want to try again.

I love the pattern combined with the print on this fabric. it looks great. sorry the fabric itself was a pain, but it looks well worth it.
