It’s less shiny in real life, without the flash. The fabric was very puckery, so I cut two of each for the top to eliminate facings on the neck and sleeves. I let out the waist a bit, and I added bra strap carriers. They are just little pieces of ribbon that snap on one side and hold your bra straps out of sight. Very helpful with the wide neck. I also put in the zipper by hand.
This was my pattern. I liked the full skirt and the boat-neck in the front, and the V neck in the back.
