    I like to alter patterns a little too and you are particularly good at this. Although I like the dress I really don’t like the ties. Can you suggest a way to omit the back ties?

    Yes, I like the sleeve alteration, too, it suits the denim fabric.

    Wow, I love it on you! I love this pattern and it’s great to see it altered by someone! How did you add the room? I don’t need it, but I’m just wondering in case one day I needed it… or someone else. I really love this dress.
