This is the gather drape dress no. 3 from Drape Drape book 1.
This version is size large, unmodified from the pattern in the book.
I found that this was a little bulky (and I could have made a smaller size). As well, the back neck was bulgy and floppy. I also found that the waist gathers were a bit high for me and wanted to lower them.
I made alterations and sewed a new, tunic-length version which is much better fitting. See it here: http://www.burdastyle.com/projects/dd-dress-3-in-black/
