I really like your version of this dress. Thank you for pointing out the potential front tab issue. ; ) This looks like a very comfortable dress.

You made a nice save on this pattern. Your version of the dress works really well on you. I'm not sure how one would do any arm-lifting in the original draft. The fabric LOOKS really nice. Too bad it was such a PITA to work with. I almost bought some rayon jersey a few days ago. Now that I've read your review I think not.

I made this for my Mom a while back. I think your modifications work really well.
