Fabulous! You have done well to make so many changes to a pattern so successfully. Having a side zip for fastening is particularly clever. Buttoning and unbuttoning without a maid to help you would be very difficult!

Thank you so much everyone! And in regards to the buttons, I actually haven't worn this dress out yet, so I don't know what the sitting situation is going to be like! This could be interesting! xx
