Unfortunately, as you can see in these pictures. It wasn't a good marriage of fabric and pattern. The ruffle around the neck is some black silk charmeuse I got from fashionfabricsclub.com. I underlined the dress with some basic ecru color polyester lining and put a hidden zipper in the back.
I just did not like the way the dress hang. I had been wanting to use the beautiful silk charmeuse that I had gotten from fashionistafabrics.com, but I unfortunately chose the wrong pattern for it. I think a linen or cotton --something with a little more body--would work better with this pattern. It lay in my UFO stash for about a year, and last week I decided to cut the skirt off and make it into a top. I am much happier.
The entire outfit I wore is below.
