Any chance you could restyle it into a top? The color is stunning on you and it's a shame to waste the fabric.

Agree with previous commentor, color is lovely on you, although fabric might be hard to save due to pleated neckline?

I might be able to get a smaller shirt out of this. Right now the fabric will go in a drawer to play with later. :)

The color is divine on you... hope you can save it and wear it as a blouse with the precious?? (I think this joke has one more left in it before we call it DOA.)

You know, when people say this to me I always think they are just trying to spare my feelings, but I'm about to say it in all sincerity: I think the dress looks great, as-is, and didn't notice (still don't) that anything looks "off" in it. And I am LOVING those fishnets!

First, the neckline is great. Second, try the dress on with a full slip - it'll smooth everything down. Third, it looks like the neckline pleats are designed for a flatter chest, so if you decide to try again, angle them outwards more, or add an extra one pointing towards the armpit. Fourth, and fifth, did I say this dress is very flattering to your figure type (slim hips etc)?

Thank you for reviewing this dress. Glad I'm not the only one that ignores that wise little voice...I'm sorry you weren't happy with your dress, but appreciate your candor in your review.
