|Top is a bit too big, found myself tugging quite a bit to keep slip straps concealed.|

The dress itself was fairly easy to construct. The sleeves were a little tricky but the instructions are well written and as long as you mark sleeve pieces carefully they go in without a hitch. Very clever and unique design. The dress is sewn with French seams. There are several pleats in the bust area but I found that in my case they created somewhat of a "pucker" so I omitted one on each side.

There's something a little strange about the way the dress hangs in the front. Interestingly enough the slip does the same thing but in a slightly different way. I think that it may have something to do with the way the front band is sewn into the dress . It's sewn to a point much like an upside down V. Creates a lot of "gathering" of fabric in the front area and my pooch doesn't help. The slip doesn't have the band but has similar gathers in the bust area. The closure is a side invisible zip.
|Such a fun and flirty dress!|
