That is one of the hottest dresses I've ever seen.  I would love to make one but I don't have the skill yet...maybe one day.  When pattern drafting no longer terrifies me.

The fur is a great touch.

thelovecats--
You have inspired to come out of lurkdom to comment on such a stunning piece.   Truly lovely.

I have two questions as I attempt drafting for the first time--

Would you mind sharing your fabric choice for this (type of) garment?  I was thinking a knit might be more forgiving of my less-than accurate measurements.

And, thank you for the link.  It links to a dress with a cowl neckline as you described.  I've drafted as best I could to the instructions only to realize that the pattern back seems to cut away from the shoulder blades leaving a 4in strap along the spine from neck to waist.  Was it a design decision to the leave in the covered back or did I look at the wrong instructions?

Thank you.

And a note for those like me who are not shaped like the pattern-- I made the mistake of just following the instructions by changing the foundation measurements and scale and diving in.  Then I realized that the instructions seem to expect that your hips are bigger than your bust by at least an inch(?).  If I were to do this again I'd rearrange the instructions to lay out my widest part first and add inches to my hips for the pattern and take out any ease on the hips last.
