The dress is beautiful and the fit is great. I'm glad to see that it worked even if you changed the grainline because I have a similar dress (also Burda) in muslin stage since last December. I did not like the skirt on the bias. I think I will try to change the grain and see if it looks better.

How was your breakfast at Tiffany's. The store as a backdrop is a nice touch. This dress fills the bill and you have styled it well.

I think you look better than the model on the pattern. I like it without the sleeves as well. You did a terrific job.

Lovely dress! I may have to get this pattern now. The cowl neckline and side ruching make for a much more interesting LBD

Wonderful dress! It fits you like a glove and looks fantastic!

Love this! I am dealing with a similar curve in the back and I get the best results when I take out the excess fabric from the side seam of the back piece only instead of the darts.
