After enlarging the canvas and adding background, I tackled the problems with the dress. I altered the neckline of the jacket and the lining of the sleeve to give a better fit. In addition, I raised the neckline of the shell, reshaped the line of the shoulder, and smoothed the wrinkles in the fabric overall. Next, I addressed the model. By balancing the fleshtones, minimizing the harshness of the colar bones, and softening the facial imperfections and shadows, I gave the model a more polished and refined look.
