this dress felt a specific reluctance against me,
the shoulder flutters like batwings on the backside, to many pleats and the wrong fabric. It should have a matt surface… It is too big now, but with a nice belt it looks good. This fabric is high quality that makes it worth the work. I solved the sholderproblem with 2 big pleats , now it fits better.
