Reply to SewNikki: yes it depends on the stretch. Baste it and try try try to see if the fit is comfortable. BTW this dress is now a shorter version. Good Luck

I am going to make this pattern for my daughter. She also wants a stretch velvet, and I was hoping to eliminate the zipper, as you did. Do you have any advice for me? :-) Was two sizes down enough to compensate? (I realize it will depend on the amount of stretch in the fabric.) Thanks!
