You did a great job. And it's so flattering, looks great.

I just picked up this pattern a few weeks ago. It's nice to hear that it's easy.

When i get wide-neck collar dresses, I normally get baby snaps and sew a little strap in the shoulder (tacked down on one side, snap on the other).  That way regardless of what bra you wear, you can temporarily attach the bra straps to the inside shoulders the dress - they won't slip, the teensy little strip of fabric won't give you bunchy shoulders, and you won't have to fuss with safety pins and the like.

Only trouble is til you're used to having them there, you might forget the first few times when you're getting undressed - accidentally tore a hole in one of my favorite dresses that way because I didn't tack the snap into multiple layers of seam fabric for durability like I should have.

Best of luck!
