The upside-down print in the yoke looks like a design detail: it mirrors the border print at the hem. So it's not a problem; it's an enhancement. Lovely dress!

I am sooo stealing this idea of the border print. I love border prints and I am obsessed with shirtdresses so this is a total win for me! Great work! And both the collar and the colored belts are fantastic ideas!

What a pretty version of this dress! I agree with the commenter above: your placement of the print on the yoke looks like an intended design feature, not a fabric constraint.

Very nice, and an excellent way to use a border print. The upside down pattern on the back looks like a design effect, as the others have said. Do not worry about it!

I love a border print, and it looks so good on you! Really glad you persevered with the pattern as it is so striking and looks great with your figure.
