Charming! I love how well the red and black go together.

I would have NEVER survived the 9 yards of bias tape!!

Congrats on completing this dress!

This is lovely. I always like this pattern but I didn't realize it was 9 yds of bias tape! Still lovely thou!

Thanks for the compliments! The lovely chrysanthemum print is quilting cotton, "Gilded Kiku" from the ubiquitous Alexander Henry collection.

To be fair, it's not QUITE nine yards of bias tape, but I was definitely well into the third package. Perhaps I'll attempt this dress again (in a smaller size!) when the memory fades. But there are other, more interesting patterns to work with first!
