The fabric is from Spandex House which I purchased in June on one of my excursions to NYC.
This baby is a lot more colorful than I'm use to but, I've been trying to put more color in my life. When Mr.D first saw the fabric he was like "wow babe, I don't know." After all was said and done, we both liked it. The back of the dress consists of 3 long pieces. The center back and 2 side pieces.
The different cup sizes were a nice bonus to the dress pattern as well. For an added touch, I added a large button to the center of the pleats. Originally I picked out the button in the photo above but I wasn't crazy about the size so I went bigger.
Pattern DescriptionClose-fitting knit dress with custom fit cup sizing in two lengths with overlapping front pleats.

you were done sewing with it?
Were the instructions easy to follow?
The instructions were very straight forward and I had no problem with them. This particular pattern has different cup sizes for you to choose from. I cut the B Cup. I did have a slight issue working the center pleat, but I worked it out and placed a large button in the center for embellishment.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I actually do not dislike anything about this pattern. The dress is very comfortable to wear. The way this dress is designed it hides my flaws pretty well.Fabric Used:
Rayon/Lycra knit I purchased from Spandex House in June.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
None. I worked it straight out of the pattern envelope.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes, I want to sew this one again, if not just to work the 2 center pleats out better than I did this time. I would recommend this pattern to others. The dress is very flattering on.Conclusion:
I have worn this dress several times now, and each time I get a compliment. It is definitely a keeper.
