I think this dress looks really nice on you!

I have this pattern and have made one dress and 6 blouses out of it. I have found the same problem with the gathers that you did. So....I turned them into pleats. I still have the soft flow of the extra material, but with the nice flat fit of a smooth pleat. Now when I turn sideways, this old 55 year old body doesn't go preggers! I have also made some of the tops, sleeveless.

I think you got a really nice fit and the colors are very flattering on you.

Wow, looks like you put a lot of work in this to get something you are anything less than ecstatic with. I hope you can find a way to wear it . . . perhaps with a brown vest or jacket from a knit lycra, depending on your skill level? Just don't want to see this stuck in the closet because the colors are perfect for you.

Would have liked to see it with the gathers. I think it looks nice, but yes, abit clingy on the bottom, but love the print on you and the bodice!
