Love the topstitching!!

Thank you! I was watching my spool of thread like a hawk as I did my last line of topstitching. I think I had literally just a few feet of thread left!

I think it is great that you were you were able to solve your fitting issue and that it turned out to be a "bonus" detail down the front!  That is what I love best about sewing...you can make your own modifications for fit and style!

I think it is a modern take on the LBD...it would be darling with a shrug or cardigan when the weather gets cooler...and a change of accessories will also change the look...

Very cute and practical LBD!  Love it!

Thanks! You're definitely right that it's a very modern take on the LBD. I originally bought this pattern intending to do it in black and white houndstooth with red tulle. But then I saw this challenge and realized I didn't have an LBD and it would look good in black and a bright color anyway. Voila!

beautiful dress.  I love the purple details.

Thank you! I typically don't go for purple, but I think it worked out quite well.
