I liked the look of this dress and I'm glad to hear that it worked well for you. It's such a simple design and looks very classic.

Have finally added the photo link with a close up of the understitching.The chiffon had a tendency to pull threads, as the photo shows, despite me being careful.However It's not obvious when wearing the dress. Repy to Re Becca--the LOL jersey has about 30% stretch. I machine prewashed mine on a delicate setting and dried it on a low heat. LOL fabrics are always top quality so they maintain their shape and, if washable, wash well.Hope this info helps. Thank you all for your nice comments

Love this. I saw that they had some jersey on the LOL site, how stretchy is it? Does it maintain its shape well? Your dress looks fabulous on, and I love the way you blended the fabrics on the ruffle.
