I made the one hour dress for a wedding rehearsal dinner. The print reminded me of art deco style print. It was soo comfortable!!! I did a few things differently; I used a lighter weight jersey and cut it on the bias, hand sewed the hem and the sleeve hem, and added neck facing. I was very particular on getting the seams to meet perfectly, but I think I did a pretty good job.
