I had a great time working with this lovely fabric: CH Cotton Stretch purchased from Emma One Sock
This print reminds me of Gustav Klimt's Kiss for some reason:

The fabric was from Carolina Herrera Resort 2012 collection. You can see the entire collection at http://www.style.com/fashionshows/complete/2012RST-CHERRERA.

Pattern: Simplicity 2648 View B Size 6
I raised the neckline by 5/8", changed the shoulder angle, and shortened the bodice.
What is great about Simplicity Amazing Fit collection is that you can choose SLIM/average/curvy fit option. When I started sewing long time ago, articles on pattern alteration were almost always about how to make things bigger, not other way around. So this collection is remarkable and I hope it continues to offer slim option.
Skirt has a vent on the back.

If I use this pattern again, I may change arm facings to bias facings or combine arm and neck facings and redraw as one piece.
