Hard to see the details in the photo. Some of us cannot wear a sack-type dress. You might try makiing a muslin and getting a better fit by adding darts should you ever try this style of garment again. The fabric looks pretty, though.

Sorry it didn't work out for you-isn't that annoying after so much work? But the fabric is pretty and maybe you can turn it into a tunic. Thanks for an entertaining review!

A bit like all those frogs one has to kiss before finding the prince... Sometimes a pattern just does not work and it's really useful when those get a review so the rest of us are forewarned.

It looks all right to me! If you kept it, maybe you would get used to it and get some wear out of it.
