Thanks for the review and for the information on the buttons. Neat trick with the snaps. I have plans to make this dress for my birthday next month.

does look good. I prefer dress 1..but both are pretty :) I bought 2081! But I really wanted 2080 because the low back looked interesting. Is the back really low?

Janella, The back dips down to what I would describe as "mid back" Still covers straps, etc. The back appears more open, simply because it is quite a wide scoop. I'll see if I can find a picture for you...

What a beautiful dress! You look fabulous! I just started sewing classes in January so I am encouraged that this was do-able for a beginner. I am definitely going to borrow your excellent idea for the snaps!

I'm almost done this dress and wish I'd seen your review earlier for the snap suggestion. I like your both versions, especially your fabric choices. Nice job.

So glad to see it on an actual human female. I was worried it would need a 50's style corset to get the right fit. Just lovely on you-enjoy the graceful style!

The pattern is beautiful! I have some Tana Lawn that is looking to be a pretty dress. I'm thinking of directly underling the bodice, and floating a slip underneath. Do you have an opinion on that idea?

Thanks for the snaps advice. I'm similarly busty and have a large rib cage too so I was concerned about gape and keeping everything neat. Plus, I was worried about how it would look on somebody who had a realistic waist unlike the picture. Thanks for sharing your tips!
