Fabric was very hard to deal with and pattern is pretty complicated, so I’m really not happy with details on this dress. And it’s really not good for my figure.

But the colour is awesome :)

    I think it looks lovely on you. I believe it would look more flattering on your figure if the length were just below your knees.

    I think it’s beautiful and I do love the colour too! I disagree that it doesn’t look good for your figure, I think you look fabulous. The deep V accentuates your decollete and the skirt flows beautifully. If I were you I’d make another one in less fussy fabric…you’ve already worked out all the bugs, so the next one should be much easier!

      Thank you! You’re right, I’m gonna to modify the pattern around the breast and middle part to fit better and make another one with cotton maybe. Thanks!

      Good luck! One piece of advice – If you have big breast like me, try to modify top front part to make it kind of higher, to let the middle part start below your breast not in the middle of it.
