What are you most proud of? i cut a size four but made the darts a size two so that the neck/back would be a little higher up. do you watch project runway!?! who doesn't!? melissa made a dress with an awesome collar a few episodes back, so that was my inspiration. i also omitted the darts in the back. instead i opted for two seams running parallel with the zipper from neck to waist by cutting four panels.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? there are so many different variations you could do with this pattern. i love this dress.

So cute! I love your version! Did you have any fitting issues? This is one pattern I haven't completed due to the never ending fit problems I had in the back.

thank you! no issues with the fit in the back but i have had nothing but issues with the darts. on the next one i make i decided to eliminate the vertical bust darts & then gather the entire skirt. i'm hoping this will help because everything else i have done hasn't worked.
