    I hate signing up for web sites just to leave a comment. I did it this time because I wanted to let you know how impressed I am with your fitting and sewing skills. I like the dress and the fabric choice on you.

    I just learned how to fit and adjust for a full bust at http://perfectsewandfit.com. Is the large bust adjustment easy to do on this pattern?

    Bravo to you, great job on the dress! I was thinking of making this dress. I’ve downloaded the pattern so I can measure the pieces to see if it will work for my figure. I am fuller in the hip area, so I’m sure I will need to adjust it too. Thank you for sharing! It is so nice to see some of these dresses on differnt figures!

    I had to adjust the pattern too. I did a full bust adjustment and added a waistband so I didn’t look too cut in half. You’ve done a really lovely job—the fabric is so pretty!
