You look lovely in it! Did you have to use bra strap keepers or do they really stay in place over a balconette? And the elusive, slinky long-sleeved cocktail dress--indeed that is a very rare find8 I thought they were extinct. Oooh, that sounds great.

Wow!! I have been wondering how this pattern would sew up. Thanks so much for the link to the lengthen/shorten info as well - very handy. Now to decide whether I can pull it off...........

I love your dress! I held off wanting to make this because of the tall sizes, but yours looks so great I might have to de-tall-ify it myself and give it a try!

Thanks for referencing the instructions for shortening or lengthening. I have been searching for these instructions for a while because I could not remember where I had read them. Thanks a million!
