i posted this dress in the completed clothing too, but i wanted to get the point across that it was super easy.

i think there were only 6 major parts for the dress/lining.  there were a few misc part for facing and underlining for the bust. 

it's fairly simple to assemble, and the directions were mostly easy to understand, but there was only mistake: when putting the "back" together, the wording switched the piece numbers, but the pictures had the right ones.

the fit was fairly good.  it's a little large in the bust, but it's still very wearable.  i'm not sure i'm going to alter it, or just find a padded push-bra.

Overall, a fairly easy pattern for making a simple, clean, formal dress that will work for many occasions.

Questions?  just ask!

Everything I know about sewing I learned in suture class.

thanks for the review-- I liked the dress when I viewed it in the completed projects list.  So simple and elegant-- seems very versatile.  I love that it was so easy to make... I think I'll pick up the pattern... Thanks!

... has anyone seen my shoes? I kicked them off in a fit of joy.
