your hipline figure is gret. If you want to balance that out w/your narrow shoulders then I suggest a top or dress top with sleeves. nice dress!

Thanks for this thorough review. I too have the wide hipline from the front/back views, and yes, occasionally I have to reminded why it is I wear the darker colors on the bottom half! But you have very lovely knees/legs, so you do have that advantage! Andreahg has an interesting idea about the full skirt (in a darker color maybe?) You did a very nice job with the fitting. Oh, and no reason to use 5/8" seam allowances on a curve if you don't want to... :)

Try the version with the fuller skirt before tossing out this pattern. I've made several of these dresses with the full skirt. Personally, I think this dress look great on you and you might be happier with it in another color.

Thanks so much for reviewing a less than successful pattern! I have this pattern, and a similar body type. I didn't think about how this dress might exaggerate wider hips. I have several dresses with slim skirts, but all with sleeves, so I think its the sleeveless element that does it. The color def. makes a difference too... at least the jacket looks fabulous, esp with that black dress!
