I purchased the H5 size pattern, thinking "I'm usually a 10/12 in RTW clothes... after reading your review, however, I think I may need to purchase the next size up! I was hopeful that the varied bust sizing would help it actually fit... I'm a little nervous that it is telling me that I need a size 18 though... the last time someone sewed an 18 for me I was 9 mo. pregnant and it still hung. I am 5'2, so I'm pretty sure I will have to shorten the torso, but I need to account for a large bust - do you have any tips? The dress looks fabulous on you though - great job!

I love the look of this dress in a solid color. It takes on a totally different look. Thanks, Michelle

Excellent, I will be attempting this for my wardrobe, thanks forthe warning about the collar instructions. I love to handpick too, it always looks better than my machine installed zips :)

Oh, this looks great. Good fit and obviously well sewn too! The fabric choice is really pretty. I know what you mean about instructions sometimes. Sometimes it just looks and sounds like something completely different than what they really mean and then after I've pulled a few hairs out over it, it's like I finally get it. Great job.

Thanks for letting me know, Oracle! I put new pics in the album and it must have given another photo their spot in the line-up. I think it's fixed now!

I love your version of the dress. But the problem is, the photo of the dress seems to have disappeared and turned into a bunch of pinafore photos! Can we have it back? I want to return to it again and again to admire it!
