This time I cut a 14 on the top and graded out to a 16 at the waist, which helped the top to fit more snugly along the neckline. I still had to raise the armhole considerably. The fabric is a stretch gray lacelike fabric with an attached under layer from Joann Fabrics.
Let me say up front these are not the most flattering pictures, I need to figure out what to do with my arms and obviously this isn't it, but the dress wore pretty well in real life.

If I could find the right jacket, I might be able to extend this dress's wear into the fall.
