I had significant fit issues that involved taking the entire dress apart, trimming, trimming, trimming and putting it back together. The width of the shoulders and waist were the biggest issues, and they still aren't perfect. See that wavy waistband? Ugh. As much as I love the neckline, I can't stand the waistband. It needs to be slightly tighter to pull the clear elastic a tiny bit, but I think I'm done taking it all apart!
Between the wavy waistband and slight bagginess at the lower back, the dress needs some kind of belt or sash. Apparently, the pattern envelope has a "purchased belt" for a reason. Some options:
|White sash, stolen from another top.|
|Skinny hot pink belt|
I kind of like the self-fabric sash, since it can be sewn down and not shift (always practical!), but the pink belt looks kind of fun, too. Self sash + pink belt? :)
