|styled for dinner out with black wedge sandals, black clutch and chunk crystal earrings...oh, and I curled my hair!|
The quick summary is-this is a well drafted pattern, and makes up into a nicely fitting dress. The only sticking point for me was the strap placement. My shoulders are quite narrow, and so I did not attach the straps until everything else was done. I left the band unsewn near the straps and marked, basted, marked, sewed to get them as close as possible. I still feel as though they may slide around a bit and wonder if a possible fix on the next iteration would be to use elastic within...?
Another important change was to ADD an inch to the length. I am petite, and I ADDED length. Just sayin'
