Mimi, you look stunning!! What type of lining did you use with the ponte knit??

I just have to add my 2 cents worth! This is a classic dress and you will have lots of fun matching it with different colors. Beautiful pleating at the hip.

Thanks!!!! for those asking about the lining and fabric here it is, I purchased the Ponte at Joanns and they carry a very lightweight knit fabric that has just enough silkiness that the dress won't stick to. I used that for the lining :-)

Yet another great look. You make perfect choices about what suits you and the execution is always first class. I would never have looked at this pattern based on the catalogue illustrations. Thanks for sharing with us.
