Beautiful! Thanks for explaining the bag method of attaching the lining. A tut of the last step would be fabulous!

Fabulous! Do you know the fiber content of your ponte? I'm always on the hunt for a good ponte, but they are not all created equal. You make 'bagging' sound so simple!

Definitely looks better on you than the envelope picture! And I don't know you stand up in those shoes, let alone walk.

Meant to ask -- what did you line this dress with?

@Deepika Thank you! I cut the smallest size and still took out about 1" of ease in the bodice. The size 6 fit fine for the skirt portion ;-)

@CissieW Thank you! I used a black Stretch Tricot Knit for the Lining

One word: smokin'! That is a great dress, especially with the pegged skirt alteration. Your rendition makes me take another look at this pattern.
