You look fantastic Lareine! Thanks for the review - the idea of sewing a dress from the packet without an FBA is so appealing.

Looking at this is a little nostalgia trip to the '60s. You did a great job with it!

It looks fabulous! Love the gloves. What was the fabric you used for the two pieces?

I am not sure what either fabric was, so I was hoping nobody would ask! I'm guessing they were both polycotton of some sort but can't be sure. The dress fabric has a slight stretch to it and doesn't crease easily so probably has a bit of spandex in there too. They were both pulled from my stash. The pattern recommends "cottons and blends, silks, synthetics and blends; brocade, matelasse. Lightweight wools and blends; silk and wool blends."
