This dress is SO comfortable! I don't know exactly what the fabric is, but it was on sale at Joann Fabrics and is SO comfortable. To start things off, I made the dress to big and too short. Yup. Lovely. Oh well! Like I said, it is super comfortable. I wear it around the house mostly, and always with a belt to break up the pattern and add some waist definition.

The pattern was very straight-forward and would have taken probably around 2 1/2 hours, but I raised the neckline 5 whole inches so I had to change the tops of all the pieces. That took a lot of time. Once everything was cut out it went very quickly.
VERY full skirt (and I didn't even choose the version with gores) and the side.
The back is pretty low. I'm not sure what I think about that, but I couldn't fix it without a lot of hassle. I have three cover-ups in that beige color, so there isn't much trouble there.
The day after I made it we went to a wedding, so I was able to wear it. I also made Emily a skirt with a plain knit waistband. I is definitely not my best work, but she says it is her favorite, so that is good. :-)
