You did an excellent job making the dress; I experienced the same wearing/fitting problem. When I revise the pattern I will post the contrast.

I'm sorry you were disappointed in this dress. At least your experience is helpful to others. I am attracted to the pattern myself but as it has had so many bad reviews I manage to restrain myself!

Your review is very helpful -- thanks! I hadn't even noticed that they'd changed the V-shape to a U-shape. I bought this for my daughter when it first came out, but a few weeks ago I finally put it in the give-away box.
