I swear this is the most flattering dress I've ever made, even if it looks like a damp dishrag just laying on my sofa. The problem is, the ruched waist panel won't spread out properly as it would when worn. I tried hanging it and the whole thing just drooped. I know, I know, I should take a photo of it ON ME, but by the time I take the photo, it is usually hella late and I am so sleepy a photo would be a crime. So trust me, I will be making more of these dresses and just so you see what it is supposed to look like when worn, here is the link to the pattern photo itself.
