Does anyone have any thoughts or ideas on how to make this dress not make me look like a marshmallow on top?  I hate when you get to the point in your project when you feel like it isn't working and have no idea how to fix it.

The thick black waist band cuts it in half and creates that marshmallow-look,I think a thing to do would be stitch some beads around and upwards of the bust and if you must add a waist keep it in a lighter flattering colour and smaller like a ribbon since it is an airy floaty fabric also the legs should be in a pale or light hosiery black is too heavy, you could also make sort of beaded shoulder adornments.Some adornment on the hem perhaps. Succes with the dress.

It  seems there is allot of fabric  in the top  , is it the right size for you ?
It seems  too be  too big or you .

The black belt  is too wide and too black , agree with Bellberyl on that one .

Gotta agree with Nofuelleft, there is way too much fabric over your bust. If you're working from a paper pattern, try eliminating about a third of the gathering evenly from throughout the centre portion of the pattern (leaving the neckline and armhole parts intact), and see if that helps. Before you go chopping into your dress, though, make sure that'll do it by making a muslin out of crap fabric like pillowcases or sheets or $1 broadcloth. Wouldn't want to take out TOO much, after all Tongue

I personally love the black belt with the powder pink fabric.
