im SO GLAD you did this dress. i made it and had a he** of a time with the underarm gussets. i scanned your review for mention of them but you must be a master! i also had a struggle with the zipper and all the layers at the side. you did a beautiful job! and not a word about the gussets!

Thanks for the review! I was debating the benefits of the inside belt, too. You've convinced me I can do without. Thanks! Wasn't looking forward to that step! :-)

Inside belts aren't bad. I've done them on several other dresses, but if I don't think a dress needs it, I don't put it in. I'm not having trouble with the skirt pulling the dress down or the waist trying to ride up so I think I made the right decision on this one. Thank you for all the compliments.

the side line from the bust to the hips is a wonderful S which shows so well in your photo. I love your taste in patterns, and this one looks great on you. Thanks for the review!
