I actually took a few inches out of the skirt/gathering this time around, but it looks even more voluminous than the last jamie dress. After 4 kids I'm a little sensitive about looking bigger around the waist.
This is the best photo I got:
This was the worst:
ICK!! What happened in the back of the dress? Still pondering that. I may have done that when I tried to force the front and back waistbands to match up. Maybe I can still rescue this dress.
In this one I think I'm holding down the poofiness of the skirt subconciously. This dress will have to go back to the drawing board if I want to wear it out in public.
