Adorable, elegant dress

This dress is perfect for going out with my husband, and he loves it as much as I do. I made it in a very soft brushed poly that has gorgeous drape, but it tends to stick to itself slightly, making the sleeve flounces do weird things when I swing my arms as I walk. I think a smoother fabric choice would fix that. I love the deep scoop on the back of the neckline. I had to trim off the excess fabric in the neck facing because it refused to stay on the inside and kept flipping up. The cut and style of this dress are lovely and I'm very happy with it!
