I am getting ready to visit my daughters in Chicago in a couple of weeks, and thought it would be nice to have a new dress to wear the evening we go to the theater. This pattern has been so favorably reviewed on PatternReview, so I gave it a try with some lycra knit from JoAnn Fabrics. I am happy to say it fits perfect! All I need to do to finish it is to put in the hem on the sleeves and skirt edge. It was a fun sew....much more enjoyable than shopping for a dress!
