There are no new construction details to share since this is my fifth version of this pattern. But each time I work with the pattern, I adjust some minor detail that makes the dress more me. I can tell you that just like my maxi-mized version of this dress, I've added a deeper drape and a smidge more fabric in the abdomen area. This has resulted in a fuller hemline but I'm okay with that because it's the drapiness of the neckline that I like most.
I'm still using seams in the back area...both at the bodice and skirt. I like this look better and after reading through some of the other reviews of this dress on Pattern Review, I realized that my back seam should be a little higher. So this time during construction I changed the depth of the seam to raise it a little. Other than that this is still the quick sew that it always is...especially since most of the construction is done on my serger.
This dress has great versatility...
