I think it looks great on you. When you get the fit that you want, you will have a pattern to make over and over.

It looks pretty good - a nice fit for your first try but agree with others - you need to do an adjustment for sway back to take care of the folds you are getting in the back waist area

Very nice and it does look good on you. Keep working on the fit - you'll get there before you know it!

This is a very good first try and I would agree with Pocket Venus on the sway back adjustment. I also think you should make it again ~ you will get an even better garment the next time!

Lovely and very flattering. Perhaps a sway back adjustment (deeper darts) might help with the loose fabric at the back waistline?
