Hi Lakaribane: My DD is 5'2", B cup and about 105lbs. I made the smallest size for her. I did not do a sba with this dress. However, it might have been a good idea. Mostly, she has a narrow rib cage and a little thick through the waist. The waist was no issue bc of the pleats. Her alterations were pretty easy bc of the darts and side seams. I would do a muslin on the bodice pieces if you go with this pattern.

I love the fabrics you used but I'm curious to know which size you used. I want this pattern but I'm a bit worried about having to do many alterations and a SBA (I'm 5' and a B cup). Any input?

Gorgeous. And I'm amazed I bought this pattern a week ago with the same idea - black with a lace top!

This turned out really nicely. I never liked the dress on the envelope, but now I get it. Good job.
