This is a lovely dress! After looking at your beautiful result, I was surprised to see your rating of the pattern. It sounds like you need to adjust the pattern for your fit. Perhaps you need to do similar pattern adjustments for other Simplicity patterns? I am short and always have to shorten patterns between the shoulders and waist. I also have to pick a small size for my narrow shoulders and add an fba to get the right size. It sounds like you're onto something with the idea of starting with size 10

Sorry you the pattern gave you such trouble, but if it's any consolation, I think it looks really great on you. I love the color contrast and the ruffle neckline looks amazing.

This is a cute dress. It reminds me of Katy Perry for some reason!

Although you had some issues you look fabulous in it! I love the blue and red! I think the ruffles would give me anxiety! LOL!
