Thank you for the review. I am in the middle of making this and was just about to give up in frustration over the v-neck facing, but reading your review and seeing the finished product gave me hope. You look fabulous in that dress.

Lovely job on this dress! You look beautiful. I keep eyeing this pattern--and some silk to make it up in. The more positive reviews I see, the more I feel ready to take the plunge!

Your dress is so pretty! I've done a FBA on just the side panel then added length to the main bodice. If it doesn't work then I'll go back and do a shoulder ps FBA like you did *if I can figure it out LOL*
