First Attempt Dress

Burda World of Fashion 2/2009 Dress 124A

This was my first attempt at this dress, I unfortunatly didn't read all of the directions. I had got so distracted when I was tracing out my pattern pieces that I  forgot to include seam allowances. It wasn't untill I was almost finished that I noticed and was very upset with myself. 

This is it on my dress form that has my body measurements set, as you can tell it lacks about two inches to be able to fit me. Without seam allowances I have an american size 4/6 dress, am not quite that small (if I were to drop 10 lbs. maybe).
