    Did you have a problem with gaping at the back center? I just finished the full-skirted version of this dress, and I had a lot of issues with getting the fit at the zipper right. It seems to be a common problem. Yours looks great!

      No, I didn’t have a problem with that. I did use two different sizes for the bodice and the skirt. I don’t know if that made a difference with how the back worked out. This is the 3rd dress from this pattern and the zipper worked out okay each time.
      Thank you!
