Thanks for the review and the details in your blog. Congratulations on your weight loss! I can relate to the not-knowing-you-are-smaller mentality. Your dress looks really nice on the hanger! I love your color choices. It looks to me like the Big problem with this pattern is that V-neck, on the bias, which will s-t-r-e-t-c-h, even worse with a knit than a woven. Did the pattern call for stabilizing the neckline before handling the pieces? Also, I've learned to cut the neckline in a much smaller size than the rest of the pattern, then adjust to a larger size if I need too. I've also added fabric to necklines when I've cut them too large, but that doesn't always work and it is a pain to do. I just hate to throw away all that work!

Uh Oh! Sorry that didn't work but if you give it another go you should try a different fabric. You will need to use a fabric with little give. Cotton knit was not a good fabic for this particular project. Start again and this time you might want to make it one color to avoid thread changes. (frown) Don't let the wadder get you down! Look at the bright side, you can go and buy some new fabric!
