I initially added the outer two ruffles, but it was still to flouncy for me, so I removed the inner set and just left the one ruffle inside the princess seam. I made no alterations to the pattern (I cut a 34), aside from taking in the back princess seams a bit below the waist, but for my next version (or versions – this is a fantastic pattern), I have made a 1" FBA.
The sleeve slit facing instructions were a bit confusing but I muddled through with my copy of Readers Digest Complete Guide to Sewing. I’m very happy with this project!
