Despite the problems you had with the pattern and instructions, your dress turned out really great. That colour choice looks really good on you too. :)

Those facings on the neck/armscye look very professional. Its made a terrific dress in spite of the construction battle.

This dress looks fantastic! At least you have a great dress for all that suffering.

I hear you. I made this last year and it was a total pain to make. I had trim and notch the facings so much that it is all ready coming apart. Your version looks very nice and am tempted to make another. Maybe if I am really really bored.

Your neck and armscye bindings look great--not an easy thing to do! The dress is cute, though I think I will stay away from the pattern.

The dress is gorgeous so I think it was worth the effort and fuss. Totally looks like a high-end store bought dress amd it looks fantastic on you!

Well, the end result is very nice looking even if the construction was a pain. and I love the jacket you made from this pattern.

A very helpful review. I got this pattern on sale for a buck and compulsively bought it despite it not really being my style. It sort of looked like a pain to work with but with this knowledge i think i'll skip it to try other patterns that won't drive me up the wall. Your variation is lovely, though, if i do try it i will take your advice and opt for a knit fabric and no zipper.
