i am so impressed with your result. I need to make a FBA and also about the same size you did. Glad to see a curvy girl looking stunning in this dress!

The look is just marvelous!! The FBA is dead on not for the faint of hear. I'm just loving your LBD. This is a great review with very detailed tips & photos.

Great review. I had to chuckle out loud at your notion that the FBA wasn't for the faint at heart. I always have a HUGE FBA to do on everything, and it's a great deal of work. I am so happy for you that yours turned out to fit you like a glove! I love your styling - Michelle ain't got nothing on you! Look forward to seeing your next incarnation of this dress!

Great LBD! Your styling is simple and elegant, especially the daytime look. The dress is completely transformed! Knockout FBA and topstitching! Well done!

Lovely, this dress is so worth making isn't it? never thought this would look so good with the blouse under it, but surprisingly that's my favourite look! lovely result, I definitely think you should make another for summer now that you've perfected the fit.
