It's such a pretty dress! I'm sorry to hear you didn't like it, maybe I would have rated it as 'Ok but did not work for me' instead of 'Mediocre'?

I'm sorry you're not happy with the dress -- I think it's just lovely.

I think your dress is gorgeous. I love the pattern placement - it is very appealing. The pink color is beautiful on you!

Don't let the asymmetry of the pattern bother you - it reminds me of the fantastic prints of Alfred Shaheen. He designed gorgeous exotic/Hawaiian clothing in the '50-70s, so it's completely appropriate to your retro dress :-)

It's such a pretty, graceful dress--too bad it isn't quite what you wanted.

Such great fabric! It's too bad about the problems you had (I know how frustrating that can be) but it does look great on you!

Very pretty dress. I think the fabric is a perfect choice for this pattern and the fabric placement adds interest.

Despite your problems and adjustments, your dress really is quite pretty. I love the fabric and it works well with it. Too bad about the tight armholes too, I hate that.
