ha! i just realized this dress was supposed to have a faux front wrap shirt which the print would have probably swallowed anyhow.

I think it looks pretty good on you! Love the racer-back.

Too bad this was a disappointment! I like that racerback a lot.

I just made this dress also and am less than thrilled with it. I think it's the pattern. I did include the flap, but probably would've liked it slightly more the way you did it.

i think it's the pattern too. i made another one today in the 10 and i think the shoulder seam needs to be taken in about 2 inches. i also put some elastic in the lower arm hole about two inches each side of the seam to get rid of the gap. i discovered after putting the zipper in that this dress slips on and off with out it. i made it a little longer and with the faux wrap front in a solid and i think it looks better but the fit is eeeehh.
