    I made this dress recently to wear at a wedding. The pattern had to be adjusted quite a bit across the shoulders as it was too wide for me, adding extra darts to the back piece. I re-cut the armholes to fit better. Had a bit of a fiddle to set the sleeves in right but it looked really good once all this was done. I think the zip is not really necessary in this dress if using a stretch fabric which is recommended.
