Simplicity 9880 (1995) Tantrum dress Part IV: Done

Finished it last night.  I'd call it a 60% success.  The length is fine.  The sleeves, as I suspected, are a bit too long.  I don't know yet if they're too-long enough to be annoying; I'll have to wear it for real and find out.  It needs more full-bust adjustment.  I think this clinches it: Adult women cannot wear patterns that don't have bust shaping (darts, gathers, whatever).  If I made a bigger size it would be huge around the neck, but it pulls a little across the bust and into the shoulders/fronts of upper arms.

I'll probably wear it awhile and see if we get along, but I'm going to start messing with other patterns for prairie dresses after this.
