Love your version of this dress. Thanks for the details on how you made the sleeves fit. I'm planning to make this dress soon.

Your dress looks wonderful! Beautifully styled with your red shoes. Great fix on the sleeves...looks like a clever design element rather than a fix!!

You look fabulous in the dress, even with your issues. So far, I don't think I am up for trying this pattern. Thanks for review.

Awesome! I would call that a very long gusset! Imagine fixing that sleeve issue with lace or zipper trim with a contrasting fabic in the gusset.

Oh my GodsgirlT what a time you had with the sleeves, great problem solving, sewing is a challenge at times that feels like a science. I think you won an award figuring out those sleeves. Black was the best color for hiding mishaps but yours looks like a design detail. All in all it looks great on you and the fit is right on, you will actually wear this dress a lot, I prefer the length of your sleeves over the long ones. Your reviews are always a reminder for me to share my projects :)

Your dress looks great! The more I read about this pattern, the less inclined I am to make it. Thanks for the review.
