  • I finished the interior of dress with french seams. Looks beautiful and very professional
  • I shortened the dress about 3″ to be slightly above the knee. Much better suited on my 5’3″ frame
  • Navy linen is slightly shear but once worn you cannot see through. It has a nice sheen to it
  • It is a little tight around my chest but still comfortable
  • The zipper was a challenge so I opted to do a simple invisible zip instead of the suggested lapped zipper
