After months of trying to finish this dress, I finally did! First, I couldn't figure out what to use as a closure. I tried an invisible zipper, which is what the pattern called for, but it had to many layers and the zipper would split. I don't know how other people (who used this dress pattern) kept this from happening. Then I couldn't figure out how to do the sash, I ended up just making a sash that you could just tie it on.
