Wearable? You've underrated your work. Your dress turned out lovely and you wouldn't be able to tell that you had any challenges with the size - a credit to your ability. Great job and congrats on the weight loss!

This dress looks very elegant and expensive, imo. I would totally think you bought it at a nice boutique. Your necklace looks great with it!

What a lovely and classy dress. I see no flaws whatsoever. :o) Nice save on the bodice fit. Your darts look like another design element.

I think it looks flattering and swishy! The fabric flaws are really not noticeable in the photos. You did a great job putting this dress together with those challenges.

The dress looks very nice, but I think that's mostly due to the terrific body you are developing. Congratulations!

It looks so nice on you. I sincerely doubt that anyone would know about the flawed fabric! Congrats on the weight loss! Can't wait to see version 2 in a 10!

You are too close to the flaws still - I think you'll come to see that this dress is much much better than merely "wearable" - it looks lovely on you.
