Hawaiian dress: my first attempt at sewing (Butterick See & Sew 3878)

My first attempt at garment sewing was this "Hawaiian" dress that I wore to a luau.
Pattern: Butterick - See & Sew 3878
Size: 6
Fabric: Batik cotton
Things I learned:

  • I had to shorten the shoulder straps about an inch.
  • Well, okay, the turn-of-cloth at the neck line does leave something to be desired... Unfortunately, I still struggle with that. Any ideas how to master it better?
