I have read the reviews of this dress, but I didn't find the answer to my question. Did anyone have to make a FBA? Do you usually have to? It looks a little Pear shaped in the pattern photo. Any help is appreciated

I didn't do an FBA and I wear a 32G.

This is the second time I've seen this dress mentioned today! Does anyone have a link to it?

If you put "Mission" in the search box at the upper left of your page, you'll bring up quite a few nice reviews.

Can I piggy back here? I have this pattern in my queue and probably going to cut it out next week. I think I remember that racehorse added length to yours. Where did you adjust the pattern. I don't see an adjustment line on the pattern so I'm wondering if anyone can recommend a good place to do it. I'm going to sew the pattern as-is my first time around. I have some fabric I found on clearance for $2/yd so I'm considering it a muslin.

I think I lengthened at just above the knee, which is what I do when I don't see a lengthening line. I think this keeps the skirt from flaring too much.
