Well your dress looks gorgeous in silk charmeuse, and the fit looks great, too.

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.

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

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

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

"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.

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!

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.

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