This is a lovely pattern! I made it once before without taking the designer's excellent advice and shortening the bodice to the right length. Doing it right this time around made a big difference--look at the fit of that bodice!
I inadvertently installed a too-short zipper in the side seam which makes the dress very tricky to get in and out of, but it's worth the trouble and is extremely comfortable once it's on.
I omitted the ties that the pattern calls for and took in the waist a little.
The fabric is a very light silk charmeuse I bought several years ago. I adore the combination of pink, rose and brown. I thought I might have trouble with the drape as the pattern calls for a mid-weight drapey fabric, but it couldn't be better.
