I started making this dress but the muslin kept coming out too big and the bust seam was in the wrong place, so I just gave up. Pattern was drafted poorly. Your dress is beautiful!

Fantastic job, especially with overcoming the wonky pattern fit. Now it's just perfect and it must be a blast to wear. I bought this pattern not sure if I would actually make it or just fantasize about making it, but the $3.99 Vogue pattern sale made it acceptable either way. Now, seeing it made up in bark cloth boosts this pattern from a "maybe" to a "definitely". But the fitting hassle knocks it down to a "maybe +". If I can find some tiki print bark cloth it's up to "Yes - hassels, schmassels!" P.S. Happy Birthday! Having your birthday fall on on the day of the apolocypse must have been delightfully awful!!!
