Very nice but...
Pros - This dress is very comfortable and looks elegant. The material is stretchy and a bit heavier - almost a sweater knit. The sleeves aren't quite as short as they appear in the picture (better for me!).
Cons - The arm holes are very large. I will have to stitch them up by hand so that my bra doesn't show when I raise my arms. This is a problem in so many plus-size tops/dresses. I suspect that the pattern is made for a size 20 (or similar) and then all dimensions are just enlarged in increments to make the larger sizes. This may work for waist and hip measurements but it make armholes waaay to big.
