This is my attempt at Butterick 5314.  I only altered the collar. It was a very easy pattern and the whole process took just part of my afternoon. What am I supposed to do now? Smiley  Here 'tis:





back (I know, I know, I must iron that seam):

It looks great!  I like your neckline better, too but I've never been a fan of lots of extra neck-fabric so that's no surprise, hehe.   Like others have said, the fabric compliments the shape of the dress just beautifully. Smiley
