cute! cute! cute! I love green and black together. What a nice job you did on all the details. I'd wear it to church - but our church is not quite as "sedate" as the catholic church ;-)

bdeger, I am currantly working on a muslin for view "C" of this pattern and I have run into the same problem. I flat measured the bodice and there was over 6" of ease! I cut my muslin two sizes smaller and have had to add to the shoulder height but I still have over 2" across the back to deal with. It seems to be made for someone with a very broad short back- . I also love this dress and hope I can solve all my fitting problems before I lose heart. I attended a seminar with Connie Crawford at the ASG conference last weekend. She maintains that all fitting problems are caused by an unbalanced pattern and gave some hints on how to solve them. I am going to review my notes and see if I can work this out. I love your dress- the print is perfect and you seem to have solved the fit problem perfectly. Great job!

Love your dress. I just made mine. According to the pattern, I'm an 18. But I took in about 2 inches all the way around it. Next time I'm cutting a 14. This dress does run large. Thanks for your review.
