Reflections: This is a wonderful pattern. The slinky fabric makes it  a very comfortable outfit. Looking at the pictures, I need to lower the last button a little.  Instead of the white accessories, I wore a grey hat, purse, shoes, and the same jewelry.

  1. That is such a lovely outfit. The fabric you used is very beautiful. So how do you put on the dress without a zipper? Does the fabric stretch?

    1. Thank you. The slinky fabric has as much stretch as knit. Therefore, with the neck opening as wide as it is, there is no need for a zipper. There are times when a pattern calls for a zipper that you do not necessarily need one.

    1. Thanks BeaJay. It did look okay with grey. If you look closely at the fabric, it is a white/black, but the blend has a greyish tone.
