Now the dress is finished, the voile is sagging alot on the drapes and folds and looks baggy in parts rather than nicely draped. Could be my sewing, but I double checked the layout when sewing, and initially the folds looked ok, but have fallen over time. I have had to invisibly stitch the folds in place. As I have the fit right, I will try again in a crisper fabric that holds it's shape better.

Thanks for your review. I am considering making this dress and would love to see a photo or two of your finished dress!

I've made this dress and had the same sagging issue. I think it's a design flaw.
