This is beautiful, and I love the print! And it will look good WITH black, which is often an issue in my wardrobe. I followed the links from people in this thread, but many of the patterns and sites are no longer available! Did you get a pattern online? Is there one available? And, is your fabric a jersey? You are totally rocking it.

Here's a virtual bouquet of congratulation!

I think the dress and that fabric are gorgeous on you - though I totally understand about prints... I love them, but I almost never wear them in the end. 

Anyway, great work, and I am saving the picture of all the different ways you tied it.  I can only ever remember the one I use most.   Cheesy

Rostichery's tute is the best.It was so easy to follow and the dress took like no time at all.

I've worn my black stretch velvet one more than the purple spandexy one. I see such lovely prints on other people and always feel strange wearing them myself  Undecided
