What a great dress!  The style and colour are just perfect on you!

Hi Jenny,
Yes, i think that's why it turned into my favorite dress. I was surprised when the patern called for 5 yards, but as you layout the pattern pieces, the bottom half is a big circle. The second thing I loved about the pattern it is fully lined and I think it emphasizes the drape.

Hi Leimomi,
Thank you, the color was a stretch for me, burgundy red is my favorite color. Following the sew weekly last year pushed me to try new things.

Hi Ewa,
Thank you, I live in NYC, this fabric I got near FIT called Truemart Discount Fabrics, 261 7th Ave. (corner of 25th street). The store front was just piles of bolts of fabrics and when I walked inside it was like stepping into Alice in Wonderland. Great prices, this fabric was only $5 a yard.
