I've looked at the reviews in the Gallery and it's not clear how many Petites made this.

If you have, did you use a smaller size? If not, are you overwhelmed by the volume in your regular Vogue size and which you had gone down?

What about the neckline? If you are short-waisted like I am, and usually shorten above and below the bust, did you still have to fiddle with the neckline?

My mojo is slowly coming back and I found the thin rayon (?) knit I had intended for this but 3 yds of fabric is brutal.

Opinions, please! TIA

It looks like 8 people made it. Sorry I'm not one of them though. Cute dress!

Can you try draping the actual fabric over your body and see how it works?

(Check the actual width of the pattern piece and see how that much fabric looks on your body...)
