    Nice dress, with lovely fitting; looks as if made from two different fabrics.

    Oooh wow! I love the contrast red in there. Is that piping or another cut of fabric sewn onto the self fabric?

      It’s red bias binding ribbon used as piping :)

    I like your additions to the pattern. I tested it too and I love how everyone made subtle changes to make it their own and how choice of fabric made the dresses so different in the best way.

      Thank you! The cotton stretch helps very much with the shaping! I didn’t even have to add a back zipper! :D
