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

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

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.
