I think your dress looks good on you. I can appreciate and have felt the not wanting to deal with it feeling when several fitting issues keep cropping up. Again I think your dress looks great,but we all know that the wearer is the one that has the final feeling/say.

The dress turned out lovely depite your sewing issues. Thanks for the helpful review. I have the See&Sew Butterick version (which is the same pattern) on my to-sew list.

Your dress turned out beautifully and it fits you really nicely! I'm sorry that the pattern gave you conniptions and that you don't like the finished product. Maybe with a little time you'll forget the pain of its creation (like childbirth?). I made your dress's twin sister (in a slightly different colorway) a few weeks ago--suppose I should get it hemmed and reviewed!

In spite of the issues you had along the way, the dress appears to fit beutifully and it certainly has a nice range of flexibility from work thru dress occasions.

I also can't see any of the issues you're talking about, it looks fabulous!

Elegant is definitely the word for this dress. The fit is beautiful and the style itself is classic. You'll get years of wear out of this, and your fitting issues don't show at all. Beautiful.

Excellent review. This issues you mention do not show up on pictures. Your dress is gorgeous. I love the fit on you. You did great !!! to answer your question, yes sometimes I live with little misfit issues because I just do not fill like unstitch difficult parts of garment. You will see in an upcoming review. I recently had problem with a skirt and decided on finishing it and wearing it anyway. With time, you will forget those little, little flaws. ;-)

I'm sorry you're not totally satisfied with your finished product, but you look smashing in your dress. The fit is most flattering, and the workmanship is lovely.

Your dress is fabulous! Your post muslin fitting issues with the tight armseye et al may be a function of 1). adding the lining and 2). muslin may be more "forgiving" (stretchy) than your fashion fabric. I have had this problem in the past--even knit "muslins" for knit garments have failed to predict success if the stretch factor is not comparable.
