This dress was tough. I cut the front in one piece, and that’s what gave me trouble. The front middle is still a bit loose and needs some work, but I haven’t quite figured it out. My blue crinkle dress was practice for this although I constructed it very differently. I really like this, other than that little problem in the bodice! I love the ruching around the elastic and at the shoulders.
