I love this dress! I downsized it to a 32". Although i’m small i have a relatively thick waist (thanks to two children!) so had to loosen the tucks on the bodice and skirt to accomodate. I shortened the length a little too. I was confused as to whether to sew the pockets into the princess seams.. i eventually did but still not sure if i was sposed to. I used a blind zip rather than a normal zip to reduce bulk on the side. Overall, i love this dress! The neckline is really flattering and the pockets are a great feature. Thanks Burdastyle!!!
