thankyou, I have been meaning to sew this dress for the longest time. I was going to try with only 2 way stretch fabric but because of you review will not. Thank you the dress looks gorgeous on you. well done.

Slinky knits tend to be quite fine, this dress really needs a substantial fabric like ponte or wool jersey. If your fabric is robust then you should be OK.

Very helpful review--were you able to find the finished dress dimensions anywhere? I'm trying to figure out which size to make and am debating whether to go down one size or two. Thanks!

Thank you for your review. I will make the dress for Christmas, I'll make sure to write a review and post some pictures, but I certainly will use yours for all the extra instructions! Oh, and your dress turned out great!
