I am using a red Ponte Roma Knit from Joann's. The color is rich and beautiful and has a sheen to it on both sides. I have not decided on a shoe as of yet, but I am sure that will be the least of my issues.

This is what I am looking for EXACTLY. I could really dress this simple dress up to my liking:
Basically the same dress at the top, but more fitted with a little light ruffle action. I would use a nice sparkly silver vest and clutch and instead of boots some pointed two pumps.
I'm liking this outfit minus the jewelry as an option as well. Simple enough to make I think. I'm thinking some silver bling bling would be nice instead of the jewelry here:

Here is a quick Review.
Pattern Description: Misses Top – View “B”.
Pattern Sizing: 8-22.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes it did.
Were the instructions easy to follow? Very easy, didn’t really follow them completely. The pattern was self-explanatory for the most part.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I like everything.
Fabric Used: Polyester Stretch Knit
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: No modifications made
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yes, I plan to make a couple of the other variations provided.
Conclusion: Very early, maybe a couple of hours from cut to finish. It’s a great wardrobe builder.
It is so very hard to fine quality RTW clothing anymore. Even the high-end stores seem to sell clothing that is not really well made. I have bought $200.00 coats $100.00 jeans, and tops I will not name the price, with linings hanging, loose, skipped and missing threads, just to name a few.
I have also walked into church and sat behind near, or next too someone wearing the same RTW garment. Which isn't an issue for me, because I understand when they made one, they made a million. If I liked it, I am sure someone else somewhere liked it as well, or it wouldn't be on the shelf.
I want to learn so much, I want grasp all there is to know. I want to be a master craftsman. I want to look at an outfit and go home and make it, without a pattern as my Grandmother did.
