The dress is lovely and so is the young lady wearing it. You did a great job. I don't think I would have tackled that pattern.

(Mary, I am working on my style for spring pieces, just had to stop and eat lunch :wink: )
It's a textured slinky knit (4-way stretch), not sure of the fabric content, probably poly.
