Great project for a sewing novice!

I'm so pleased with the results! It was a fairly easy project, but the results look so classy and lovely. I opted for the slit and I love how it looks. The instructions are clearly laid out (and I'm not the type of person who has an easy time with written directions.) and the sewing tip links (and YouTube!) really helped me. I was thinking I would have my work cut out for me choosing Poly Crepe de Chine, but it cut and came together BEAUTIFULLY! One of the things I'm most pleased with is the length. I'm 6 feet tall, so I wasn't sure were with dress would hit me length wise. And it went to the floor! Hemmed and in my favorite boots the dress hits about 2 inches above the ground. Yay! All in all, this project took me about 9 hours but I'm pretty green still as far as sewing is concerned and a more experienced "sewist" might be able to knock it out even quicker. So excited to show this one off!
