Thanks for the excellent review. If you find the shoulders are stretching, you can hand stitch some twill tape into the shoulder to stabilize them. I use the old needle and thread, hands at the ready, for stabilizing all sorts of knit that way, from the cheap tee shirt that I love, to a hand knitted sweater I've sweated over. Literally. I"d be interested in more information on how you altered the sleeves for your biceps as I have the same problem, and have never figured out exactly what the Nancy Zieman method is, despite watching here hints on pants, which are no help on tops anyway. Sigh...

Yes, like your dress very much! You did a GREAT job! Is French Fuse a brand name?
