Originally, I couldn’t wear the dress at all because the serging/overlocking thread made me so itchy! Fortunately, the scratchiness has died down, and I no longer notice any itchy feelings at all.
I omitted the back zip and reduces the height of the front neckline by quite a bit. I forgot to account for the removal of the zip and had to insert a little pleat below the back yolk to make things line up.
Sizing Details: I sewed a size J, but probably could have sized down.
