Despite your difficulties with the insertions, your dress is lovely. I especially like the ties in back.

It does look good! I think adding the ruffled bits really makes a difference. Even though you can't see the insertions well, they define the bust, I think. You're right, though, maybe a slightly heavier fabric would have make it drape differently. Thanks for the review. You've given me some good ideas.
