@MBPaz: I think making pleats in the lining instead of gathering would be a good solution to make it less thick and easier to sew.

Great pairing of fabric and pattern. Quite flattering on you. Regarding bodice lining: having sewn it once already, could you figure out how to cut the lining narrower at center front so it wouldn't have any (or as much) gathering? I'm thinking taking some tucks in the pattern piece before cutting the lining. Just a thought.

This dress really flatters you! I've been thinking of making it, but not sure how it would look on a hippier figure type!

Adorable! You're so lucky to have the spring weather to go with it :-). And yes, often the length adjustment over the bust is almost more important than the circumference..

I like everything about this...from the color to the way it looks on you. Very pretty. Looks like a dress from Belk or Nordstrom. Really.

@MagpieJen: I really didn't do that on purpose! ;-) In the end though I was glad I didn't end up with the bold brown print accross my chest, it would have been a bit too obvious...

Lovely! I am especially impressed with the print placement on the bodice - the white and brown segment starts across the top of the right bust, down the centre then under the left. I really like it!
