Added Apr 17, 2013
This time around I shortened the dress to more of a tunic/top length. I also altered the neckline, creating a wide boat neck with and insert in the shoulders to create a bit of a square neck shape. I also added a couple of darts to the front of the shirt and removed the zipper altogether. I much prefer the shape with the front darts, although if I make it again I will lengthen the darts a touch.
