sewnotwork - I ended up not needing the narrow shoulder adjustment so I'm not sure if how I did it is "correct". I did my broad back adjustment 1/2 way down the back armscye, and just continued sloping the line inward for the narrow shoulders. I admit I just draw the line freehand. Maybe this drawing better explains it:

How do you do a broad back adjustment and a narrow shoulder adjustment? I have the same problem!

Your dress is so beautiful. The fit especially on the back, is to die for. Well done.

Re Becca - the front seam is still there, but for some reason it doesn't show well in the photo. If you zoom in you can very faintly see it below the bust.

The fit is just perfection!

Even more stunning than the first! I have to ask, how did you make the center front seam disapear? Did you tak it completely out of the body and only have the pleating in the top overlay?

Two very chic dresses; the purple is my favourite. Your work is impressive. I think you should upgrade your skill level to Advanced.

All the fitting was worth it - what a wonderful dress. And the style is very flattering for you too.

If you google "Gladson Limited" there is interesting info about that textile company.

I'm in awe of your sewing skills and your ability to choose a pattern that flatters you so well.

Love this dress on you. So elegant.

This is very flattering. I suppose the front slit could be converted to a pleat or an inset in the back with pleating that mimics the detail on front...just some ideas for the malfunction issue. You've done a beautiful job.

Gorgeous! Totally perfect fit! I have this cut out and I agree wiht you about the neckline looking wide. As the pattern is, the inner edge of the neckline lines up with the bust point so it will be need to be altered on most people.

Beautiful dress on you. I love all the details!

Oh my gosh that is perfect on you! I really like the front vent and think it adds a neat design twist. Very flattering on you.
