Lovely. I agree about the dress hugging the waist and the fullness of the skirt. Very flattering.

LOL about deliberately cutting the bodice upside down. Really, you could just start this new fashion trend. Seems just about anything goes in RTW these days!

Looks good - hey - with what I am seeing out and about in RTW the different bodice pieces could be your fashion statement - it may take off as it seems anything goes! Nice helpful review with LOL!!

Love the drape on this dress. Very flattering. Can't wait to see the "real" version.

Be sure to show us your wearable version--the muslin is very cute.

I've done the same thing. upside down cutting only I used a solid fabric that was the same color on both sides. The knit pattern is different (knit vs purl), but you can't tell up close. I tried to put the piece in backwards, too. That was very frustrating. Your dress looks fantastic. Maybe you could tell people you really wanted to emphasis your left boob? haha not. I'm sorry it didn't work out.

Oh, I have SO done that - specifically I cut out THREE front right bodice pieces for a wrap dress. I'm glad this happened on your unwearable muslin, not on the real thing! It does look like a great style on you. Thanks for the review!

Very cute style that works well for you. Throw a little fabric paint at it .... ;)

Did you get the dress made in a "real" fabric yet? I'm getting ready to make it and I was wanting to hear about your final tweeks.

Sherril - I haven't remade it in "real" fabric yet...although I do have the fabric set aside with the pattern. Last summer slipped by and its just now beginning to warm up here, which means I'm just now beginning to think of spring/summer sewing.
