This is a dress I made with many complications and hassles. That accounts for why it took me so long and why I dragged my feet.
I decided to use a stretch material for this Drape Drape pattern (no5) but with the machine I am using it was a terrible idea. I ended up having to sew every pleat and seam with tracing paper backing, and go over every seam twice. I plan on reinforcing the waistband with my serger once I return to the States.
All in all it is a very pretty dress, it moves well (sorry most of my back shots are moving!)
I altered the pattern a little to make it less revealing, good for stretch, and easier to assemble.
blogged here with more detail!
