Wonderful dress. The slightly less drapey fabric doesn't detract from it at all. You look great in it.

I like the less drapey fabric, it's just a different look, not as flouncy. It's a really nice dress on you.

PERFECT. Love it with the shoes & stockings, too. I did note on your pictures that I'm lost as to why the darts on the new pattern (R shoulder) don't cross the bodice the way they do in the original drawings. Must be some kind of volume issue, and I'd love to know how to put them in that way! Anyone have any insight, please?
