Gorgeous! I would never have thought of wearing this as a tunic over pants. It's fabulous. I think the length is perfect, so dramatic.

LollyVee, I bought this fabric a year ago from FabricMartFabrics. I think too long ago for them to have it now.

CynthiaSue, I just turned the neckline under and topstitched as per pattern instructions . I did add clear elastic under the turn under as I thought the weight of the dress might pull the neckline out of shape.

Beautiful! Thanks for the headsup on the fabric layout. I just traced off this pattern so this review is timely. I intend to wear this as a dress so I'll keep the length as is.

Stunning dress! Where did you purchase the fabric?

It looks super on you! Thanks for the heads up on the layout-that would really mess up a project.
