      I wasn’t sure how the microsuede would drape, but it draped very nicely!

      Thank you! This was the first time I made a muslin, and I think I am a convert!

    A flattering neckline shape and the draping is elegant.

      Thank you, and yes, he did appreciate it. I think he also really liked how soft the fabric was.

      I checked your profile but didn’t see it. Have you posted photos? I’d love to see them!

      I think it’s a very va-voomy dress, too. While is seems really low cut, it covered my bra completely and I was never afraid of falling out of it.
