This pattern looked so promising. A back-to-front wrap style dress with a high neckline and tied waist. I chose to make view 4 as I liked the shorter length of the skirt and the fact there were no sleeves.
Simple I thought. Simplicity.

See, I hated it so much I didn't even hem it (and Mill, you know how much I looove hemming)! The skirt was created using a mismatched combination of darts and pleats, which just added bulk to parts of the dress where I really didn't want it.

Can you see that? The terrible gaping at the back of this dress. I tried re-stitching and re-fitting but it just wouldn't stay down. Perhaps my back is shaped wrong...
~ Back View ... I don't need to say a word.. ~
You win some. You lose some.
