What a beautiful dress! I love the fit on you. Although I don't wear dresses, this might be nice to have in the closet for a special event.

Love this! I am dealing with a similar curve in the back and I get the best results when I take out the excess fabric from the side seam of the back piece only instead of the darts.

Lovely dress! I may have to get this pattern now. The cowl neckline and side ruching make for a much more interesting LBD

I think you look better than the model on the pattern. I like it without the sleeves as well. You did a terrific job.

How was your breakfast at Tiffany's. The store as a backdrop is a nice touch. This dress fills the bill and you have styled it well.

The dress is beautiful and the fit is great. I'm glad to see that it worked even if you changed the grainline because I have a similar dress (also Burda) in muslin stage since last December. I did not like the skirt on the bias. I think I will try to change the grain and see if it looks better.
