    I had a really hard time trying to get the points near the bust to lay properly without any weird puckering, so I gave up and scrapped it. Does anyone have any tips on that?

      actually that part of the construction went a lot better than anticipated, my problem area was the neckline. Sorry I can’t share any tips on that one :-(

    I just saw this and I think it came out great. I’ve been thinking of this pattern but I wasn’t sure if it would be flattering. Seeing how nice yours came out I will definitely give it a go. You look great in it. Oh I see your kitty now and she reminds me of my darling little Heidi!

    Hi Chula. Love your verion of the dress. Looks great on you. The dress is also on my to do list. I bought some pink fabric for it. But i like your idee of colorblocking, so maybe i will ad another color too.
