The bias tape binding the neckline and armholes gives it the look of a housedress, which I'm not fond of. And despite measuring myself and the pattern pieces, I think I should have gone down a size which would have taken care of the weird floppy fabric at the top of the placket. I also added some back shoulder darts to help the fit.

But the dress came together quickly and is a cinch to throw on and tear into the work. Lots of preserving work this time of year.
