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!

This is simply lovely. The fit couldn't get any better and the daytime idea is genius!

Gorgeous LBD! I'm impressed with your FBA adjustments and how perfectly it fits and flatters your figure. Lovely work!

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!
Kim12469 said... (10/15/10 8:47 AM) Reply
Wow! What a gorgeous dress on you! Thank you for the detailed FBA information.
Paris75008 said... (10/15/10 8:05 AM) Reply
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.

Fabulous! I love every look. Very well done!

The perfect LBD. You achieved the perfect fit for your body and styled your looks to perfection. Heidi, Micheal Kors and Tim Gunn would be impressed! You are a very classy lady knitmachinequeen.

Wow, this is a terrific dress and a perfect fit! I'm so glad I don't need to do FBA's, that looks like a LOT of work. Beautiful outcome! Yay! :D
