Great job Scheri; I love the dress style. Is there a pattern number? How do you self line? I would like to do this to make some of the knit fabrics more substantial but I'm not sure how to do it.

I used Vogue 8409 for the bodice and sleeves and used the muslin from the skirt portion of my dress from the Coutre class
