I too have made this dress and had exactly the same fitting issues and following the pattern was a little confusing but in the end I am really happy with my attempt. I am wearing it to a conference next month so will get pics and review sorted then.

Very striking -- the slant on the drape actually looks quite nice.

That dress is a stunner! Why, oh why, didn't they use yours on the pattern envelope? It's much nicer.

I'm so excited. I just ordered this fabric in coral and might have to go back for teal. It looks fantastic. Great retro vibe with a modern look.
