Well, Maybe Not

I intended to make a version of the Burda Style dress "Shari" that would better fit me! I love the changes I made to the pattern but the dress its self not so much. I think the color combo just does nothing for me. This dress has been sitting on my dummy for four weeks now and I could not get my husband to photograph me in it so it must be that bad!

Changes made:
I have dropped the back down,
Got rid of the zipper,
Narrowed the shoulders,
Did away with the sleeves,
Widened the arm holes

This is what my pieces looked like after altering the pattern. Lots of cutting and re-taping.
