What a beautiful dress and lovely style. The paisley brocade is rich looking.

Sewkiwi - Yes, there was a really tricky part to the dart draft. I did not add seam allowances to the vertical dart. Just slashed it through the middle and marked the lines. When I got to the horizontal dart, I had to make a diagonal cut resulting in almost no seam allowance at the pivot point. Will get a picture of the pattern piece up for you so you can see how I did it.

Beautiful dress. I drafted this pattern but ended up using another (which I must review) as I couldn't figure out how to add seam allowance to the dart. There just didn't seem to be enough space. Did you have an issue with this?
