Pattern: Vogue 7871, size 12.
Fabric: Red cotton print from Metro Textiles in wonderful NYC. The fabric is wonderful, oh so soft, and a pleasure to wear. Some beige cotton as a underlining.
Mods: I cut the front skirt piece as one piece instead of two. I really don't like how dresses look with a seam up the front so I try to omit them if it's suitable. I also lowered the neckline. I tried it on with the high neckline and I thought it was really unflattering on me so snip, snip, snip.
Like? Eh, it's okay. I can see myself wearing it on a lazy weekend or something (maybe).
Problems: This is a pretty easy pattern as the envelope said but I still had some problems. Maybe it was because the fabric was so soft and liked to move around quite a bit. The back was way too poofy, but look below, I was able to fix it by adding a faux princess seam (per patsijean's suggestion, thanks!, I ended up removing 2.5 inches off the back)
