Me Too! what size is it? maybe if I lose enough weight you could lend it to me for a wedding next Dec. DD wants us all in red or Chocolate brown. But I would need a jacket or long sleeves!

Thank you for the compliments, I got a few last night too. Had a good time. Did notice some of the other RTW dresses were not near as "nice" as mine, they had puckers along the seams and more than one had puckers on the back/bottom of the zipper area. I don't think I would have noticed if I hadn't made this one! A couple of the younger girls wore formal type dresses but mostly it's nicer dresses or slacks/sweaters/glittery tops.

I was chilly. Once we arrived, I remembered telling Joe last year I had to have something with sleeves this year but I tend to forget that year after year. It was in a new location this year too but still chilly even though more ppl attended. I made a wrap to go with the first dress but the reds clashed and I didn't have enough fabric leftover to make one for this dress.
