Sewing FO for spring V8724

I finished sewing a dress for spring from Vogue Patterns #V8724. I've used this pattern a couple of times before and I made the other two dresses from more casual cotton knits. This black and white knit is a cotton/poly blend with a nice texture and a medium weight which holds its shape really well. I cut the neckline about a 1/2 inch higher and extended the top front bodice by about 3/4 inch. I also adjusted the side seams to get the fit I want. I decided to give this dress a little more detail by adding the black trim at the neckline. I love how the fit turned out but the fabric did turn out to be a bit scratchy. I'm hoping it will soften after a couple of washings.
