What materials did you use? 4-way stretch jersey from Gorgeous Fabrics.

What are you most proud of? I am most proud of the fact that I used the fitting information I learned from Susan Khalje's The Couture Dress to get a really good fit on this dress. I'm also proud of my first time using a stretch needle and 4-way stretch fabric. Oh, and the pattern alteration work to take a pencil skirt to a twirly assymetrical hem. My janky work is detailed on my blog.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? This is a super easy pattern - just watch out for the really low neckline. I raised my neckline 2 inches and still had a really good view of my bra all night.

Very pretty color and nice fit. Congratulations on your first time use of stretch. I recently took the Sewing with Knits Craftsy course and now am a covert. Knits Rock!
