i haven't started sewing yet, i found this while i was cutting. the holes are different on the pattern. do you think if i cut them the same, it will affect the bodice?

Stargazers, the armholes are the same on both sides. You might need to recheck the instructions for the tucks. The order is important.

I am trying to make a dress using part of this pattern and part of another pattern. One problem I have come across is that the arm holes on the bodice front are different sizes. Is this supposed to be like that? I thought it might be because of the pleating but if they are different sizes, how can the same sleeve fit both? Help me please!?

I love the bodice design on your dress. Looks like it gives a very nice fit through the shoulders and bust.

This is so pretty - I love the belt detail also... Wow - much better than the pattern envelope

Sorry about the permissions. I didn't think there were any restrictions. I changed the permissions to allow downloads and also put a copy on Snapfish. http://images3a.snapfish.com/232323232%7Ffp733%3B%3B%3Enu%3D4%3A97%3E2%3B%3B%3E259%3EWSNRCG%3D338%3B%3A7374%3A34%3Anu0mrj One of these should work!

You need to change your authorization settings because I'd love to see the larger picture as well.

Would love to see the bigger picture - but just shows an "unauthorized" screen - looks great from what I see in thumbnail, tho!

This dress favors your figure type and looks so nice on you.

You chose a great pattern to help solve your fit issues, and it worked! Love the soft folds at the neckline.

It looks really nice. I wish I could see a bigger picture so I can get a closer look.
