You did a great job! You ended up with a great dress. I love the contrast bands. And the shorter lenght looks sooooooo much better on you.

I love stories like this; they inspire me to keep trying with something that's just not working. Love how your dress turned out.

Wow! What a save! The end dress looks fantastic, I can hardly believe that it was possible from your first version!

I'm all falling in love with your dress and oohing and ahing it when I scrolled down and saw, "Pattern OK but did not work for me." What could she be thinking that dress is striking and a perfect fit. Then I read on and saw your "before" pic!! I am so glad you persevered and got some good advice because this dress is awesome!!!
