My Version of Roland Mouret Afyon dress


This was not the best fabric for sewing this dress, but I love the color, so I gave it a try.

The problem is the stretch of the dress, it stretchs in all directions, you can be off for 0,5 cm, and I can see it, I hate it.

Another issue is my sway back, specially when the fabric is so stretchy in all directions
