The dress has some problems, but I'm really happy with how tight the bodice is. My constant problem is adding too much ease because a) I'm afraid I'll make something too small and waste the fabric and b) I tend to cut a large seam allowance to allow for alteration and then sew the seam half an inch away from the edge like a doofus. But this style of bodice is really fitted all in the darts, so I was able to get it close to my shape, even if there are a handful of other fit problems.
