I made this from an out of print Butterick pattern, but decided that I would get more use out of a top than a dress, since the skirt was a bit too straight for my tastes.  It's a little difficult to see because it's such a dark color, but it's gathered under the bust.  Don't mind the lines, they're from the sun shining through my blinds. Cheesy

What type of fabric is the top?  It looks stretchy...I'm working on the relationship between stretchy fabric and my sewing machine and am always impressed by those who sew well with it!

Thanks.  It's stretch velvet.  I use a ball point needle, and a zigzag stitch, and that seems to work well.  Smiley
