    Hi, I’m currently making this dress in super boring black. Yours is def more exciting! I have a question about sizing.

    I made a 6, but I find the bodice to be absolutely huge. Which alterations did you make? Simply took in the side seams at the armholes? Please help, as when I wear it you can totally see my side boob :)

      Hi, thanks :)
      I think it’s a good idea in black for this dress.
      I’ had the same problem with a size 6, so I adjust like you the side seams at the armholes, that’s all, and it’s perfect.
