What a terrific fit you've achieved. I think the dress is very flattering. The neck and shoulders look like a perfect fit. I think you'll find that down the track you'll come back and make this again. The compliments are bound to flow!

Wow, 4.5" off the length! It's perfect now so let's hope it doesn't "grow" anymore. I like how the dress skims your body showing off your waistline perfectly and the neckline is not so low that your showing the world more than you'd want to but enough that it flatters and lengthens; the members of the 5' 2" club can use all the help they can get. Beautiful dress, fabulous fabric and color.

You and your Shadow are looking marvelous! A very good review, and I especially appreciate the tip on the clear elastic, which I've yet to use (mainly because I can't ever find it). I saw it said Joann's had it, so I'll try them again.
