Lisa, first of all, I am so jealous of your mirrored closet doors! Second, I think it turned out pretty well. I'm guessing you laced it yourself so if someone else does it up, the fit will prob be a little different. The ruffles look really good and I don't think it's too revealing. Why not be a little sexy? I do think it looks good straight across your hips, not sure if I would like it as much if it was slanted. I can't see any of the minor imperfections that you mentioned. Good luck with your alterations.
