Pattern Review: S1653 my inner DVF

Hi All,  I'm on a role, here's a pattern review for a wrap dress.  I channeled my inner DVF and got to it.   I am making this again in a nicer fabric, but I think I may want to adjust the pleated wrap portion of the bodice.  The wrap dress is truly a flattering dress for all women, regardless of size/shape.
