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.

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!

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

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.

This dress is completely lovely on you! Just think how great it will fit and look when you sew the smaller size ~ congrats on a beautiful dress AND the weight loss!

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.

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!

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!
