The fenice dress

I made this dress a few years ago because I saw a similar one but I do not like the fabric and thought I could pay less if I did it myself.
The pattern is mccall 3663 , princess line looks good on me.The fabric is linen for the pale and suede for the darker.I put metal eyelet at the wrist , mostly for the look , and on the side to try to get some kind of adjustment.
I always saw myself bigger then I am in reality so the dress was a little too large , so the "possible adjustment" with the eyelet on the side change nothing in it.Another problem with this dress is the neckline , too much low.If I try to pick up something on the floor , some people may be able to see what I lady do not show to everybody.
It doesn't matter if this dress have many defects it was, I guess ,one of the three first costume I ever made and I'm proud of it.One of the many defect it have , I do not have an overlock machine on that time , all the seam are terrible to look.
