You're dress looks lovely! Thank you for mentioning the crazy hang to the skirt.....I agree, something wrong with the pattern....pattern itself is 1" longer in the middle than at the seams. I'm about to rip out zipper and take off the skirt to see how I can fix it....ugh....i may use your fix, but it's for my daughter and she like the fullness. if I can fix the skirt it will be a darling dress

I love the way your dress fits - it looks perfect now. Kudos for taking the time to fix the issues and not throwing it in heap!

I always admire people who go back and fix garments after they are finished. It certainly worked for you. You choose pretty fabrics and patterns. Love it.

This is just such a cute dress and you look lovely in it. I am looking for such a style and had not noticed this one. Quick question. When you say you took 6 inches off the center seam, is that 6 inches total or 6 inches on each side of the center seam for a total of 12 inches? Makes you wonder if Simplicity made up a muslin of this pattern. Your fix is fabulous!!
