I find this to be a beauatiful design that brings out the very best in a larger girl

This fabric (and the other stretch velvets that I've used) comes from Pacific Fabric and Iron Works on 4th Ave in South Seattle - South of Safeco Field even, where they have the Mariner's MoJo! It's a warehouse sort of place, and they have TABLES heaped with stretch velvet. Most of it is glittery and gaudy and goes for about $4.99 a yard. Shimmery - wonderful stuff! I'll check to see who their distributor is the next time I go and let you all know.

I have seen this dress in person...it is a knock out! And it fits you very well, JoLo

love the flounce. I would not have bought this pattern, but now that I see the flounce, it's on my must list. This looks great on you: hope you don't mind if I copy the flounce!

When I saw the photo, I thought, "wow, exquisite fabric!" Your dress looks very expensive and classy. Great job! The flounce is a perfect touch.

Loes would be proud at the stunning way you've put these two patterns together. Your dress is gorgeous. Where do you find these wonderful fabrics?

Your dress is defintely a WOW in my opinion (these are the ones that I just go, wow, that looks great, as a first reaction). I love the way you've added the flounce from the swing skirt on this dress - I have the swing skirt pattern and love the finished swing skirt as well so I would defintely make your alteration! Great review!

Absolutely beautiful dress! Wonderful fabric selection. I think the flounce just makes the dress...it's so feminine.
