red dress!

An autumn dress using a pattern from My Image fall/winter 2013/2014. It’s a bit wobbly, but I’m really pleased with it! The fabric is a lovely, soft, fairly stable jersey with a bit of widthways stretch. I would be very grateful for any advice about the fitting of the back bodice. There is too much fabric there (ignoring the slight puckering on the princess seams; they were the first ones I sewed on this dress, on the front they are already a little better) and I think that it needs to come out of the length rather than the seams, but I’m not sure how to go about it, if that is indeed the problem – does anyone have any sugestions?

    I love the red color on you and the dress is perfect from the front!! I have no advice about the back fit:((( I hope someone will be able to help you with this.
