It did not look like the photo in that 5" was to the length and after trying it on during fitting, I removed 1 1/2" from each side below the bust tapering it to a slimmer fit at the hem. The front of the dress was cut on the fold to remove the front seam.
Fabric Used: Lined look polyester purchased from Walmart about eight years ago.
Polyester lining from Vogue Fabrics online
The green in this fabric is the exact color of my bedroom walls and the first thing I did was place it on my bed as an overlay and surprisingly my husband liked it. I left it there for a couple of days and one day he came home and saw me sewing it and asked why? Now, I do regret cutting it as I'm not pleased with it.
A matching Jacket is on it's way and I wonder if I'll be satisfied as this fabric does not lay flat. It reminds me of my silk organza pressing cloth.
