Feedback on my Homemade Dress?

I'm making my own dress, and any feedback would be appreciated. This is just the front. I'm still working on the back. (I made a post of an early version a few weeks back and I really appreciated everyone who helped me get to this point). In case our wondering what the black lines are, there was a lot of extra fabric that I'm not ready to cut yet, but it's hard to image it with all fluff on the shoulders.

    I like the bottom a lot better.

    It looks great! One question, can you walk/sit in it? It looks very form fitting right down to your knees, I'm hoping there is a slit in the back to allow for movement.

    Beautiful! In my mind... I imagined somekind of border or outline, at the bottom of the v of the bodice. I don't know why, since I can't sew a lick...just popped into my brainSmiley smile sharing for no particular reason ha ha.
    Good job!

    Wow! Super unique. How special to design your own dress for your big day! Plus, you can pass it on as a family heirloom!

    It's come a long way and looks awesome! My only thing, I'm not a fan of the layer at the knees. I would either add a few more layers or find a way to get rid of the layer.

    Very cool! One nit-picky thing - the lace on each side of the bust looks uneven in this photo. Not sure if it falls that way when you put it on.

    I'm also not sure about the layer at the knee - to me it looks like it cuts up your beautiful lines.

    Only pointing these things out because you asked for feedback. Your dress is BEAUTIFUL and it's very impressive that you're making your own!

    This is gorgeous! You are doing an incredible job on it! The only thing I can see that I have any feedback on is the layer at the knee as others have pointed out. I think it would be even better with a nice clean line there without the layer.

    Very nice job so far love the direction you are going in. I also very much agree with the others that layer at the knee is bad !

    I'm a bit thrown by the layering in the skirt. How will that look on? To me it looks like a short dress with another skirt under it that doesn't quite go well?
