Your "Purple Haze" dress is simply gorgeous and I agree, it is the "It" maxi dress. You achieved a wonderful fit with all of your smart alterations. I too cannot live without steam-a-seam!

Stunning as usual! I have this one and it is moving to the top of the list. Would you share more details of the fabric content, and maybe a close-up pic of it? Knits confuse me and the many weaves and textures out there intimidate me!

Thank you, everyone. @Tina Rathbone - The knit I used is a jersey knit with about 50% stretch crosswise. See my flickr set for a closeup of the fabric. No need to be intimidated by knits, just take your time and before long, you will feel comfortable sewing them. Thanks for asking. Cennetta
