So pretty! I was just going to make the top, now I think I'll do the skirt, too.

Sharla, If you are planning to use a S. Betzina pattern- look at the measurements given for each letter size. The waist and hip are a tiny bit fuller for each bust size. Also, I think her bust point is set a bit lower. I am between a B/C . As a result I use a little of both depending on the design and ease in the garment.

Dear Carol, I am inspired to try to make a dress simular to your style but how do I figure out which size pattern to order? I don't know what the letters correspond to in number size. Thanks for helping and what a dress! Sharla

Yes, very nice - love your use of the two fabrics. It looks very flattering.

Rayon crepe (or any fabric with a mind of its own) is a bit fussy to sew on the bias. I recommend Robert Carr's book "Couture the Art of Fine Sewing" for tips on sewing with bias. I was lucky enough to take a class with her on bias years ago.

Love it! Love the way you used the fabrics. Is the rayon crepe not a tough one to use on the bias?

Lovely outfit. I was surprise to see what pattern it was made from. I looked at pattern information after looking at your photo of outfit. It looks much better than the pattern.

Very well-executed design! Your fabric choice works beautifully with this pattern, and is much more interesting than the pattern pics.

What a beautiful, very feminine looking outfit. I love the fabric you chose. I would not have taken a second look at this pattern either, but your version of it is really pretty. I wish I had better "vision" when it comes to choosing fabrics for certain patterns. Great job.

I disagree - your outfit doesn't look like the pattern pictures. I just love your outfit, & I wouldn't look twice at the pattern pics. Maybe it's just that they lack the detail your picture has. What a wonderful outfit. I just love your co-ordinating fabrics, and the sleeve detail is great with it.
