    Fabulous! Did you ever get that date with your DH? I think I can count on one hand the number of child-free nights out my husband and I have had in the past three years since our first was born. It’s a good thing we like her (and now her little sister) so much, and are happy staying in. :)

      Thanks, and I sure didn’t! haha wishful thinking on my part, I suppose.

    Hi Kristen, can you tell me how you tweaked the pattern. I am no size 2-4- or 6 lol. And I would love to make this fit me. I need to bring it up to a 10. Thanks a bunch to your for your inspiration and to Miasu for the pattern.

      Who says I’m not a 2-4- or 6?! lol
      At first, I just played around and added an inch or so to both sides of the bust. But, honestly, I don’t think it needs much tweaking, because I used it again, and just elongated the back panels slightly, and it fit perfectly! If I were you, I would make a muslin out of the original and go from there.
      Sorry if this wasn’t really much help, but I’m not that advanced of a seamstress -if that wasn’t obvious :)

    I love this :) I’ve used both of those patterns before and your combination is really great. The dress is so elegant and fits so well! Great job =D

      Thank you! and no- the contour bust pattern was waaaay to small for me, but it was pretty easy to tweak.
      Also, I made the waist band wider, and used less fabric for the skirt than called for.
