Crossover V necklines are apt to gap...how about a row of buttons? The sleeves could be gathered or darted at the hem... maybe? Still its cute and retro.

How about a modesty panel, or wear with a camisole? I made a very similar BS dress, with crossover neckline and wore it more with a camisole. Actually it was made of the same gorgeous butterfly fabric that you made a dress out of for your daughter

good idea yummymummy. And thanks for reminding me about that butterfly fabric. I still have some of that left in the stash

You must have picked the very best of photos because I can't see a thing wrong with it! It looks lovely and cool and comfortable.

With the crossover neck, one can often adjust the amount of the cross, or the pitch/angle for better coverage and preventing gaping (although it can lead to alot of basting and ripping). Good luck! and this dress is very summery and comfortable looking also.

I actually like both versions. I also like your pretty sandals.

I think the shorter length and removing the sleeves made a world of difference. Cute detail with the buttons too

I'm glad you were able to save the dress since the fabric is so lovely. Very nice!
