I'll have to look up the FBA technique you're talking about cause I have the exact same trouble with the pooling underneath the "girls" Yours fits perfect.

Great fit, beautiful color, and a great review. Love your "luxurious" dress.

Thanks for the compliments! I really enjoyed the dress. Now on to other muslins... I mean sewing.

Wow, what a classy, sophisticated little number! (and I also commend your use of the phrase "luxury sized" and am hereby adopting it myself)

Your dress has turned out BEAUTIFULLY, and it's fitted PERFECTLY. I love your choice of fabric, too (only my FAVORITE fabric in the universe). :o)

Wow, what a great job of fitting and construction you did. You look wonderful in that dress. Just proves, no matter what the size (luxury or not) fit and construction are the key. I'm sure that former Chicago resident would approve :-)

Love the term "luxury sized". I'll have to remember that. So much nicer than "plus sized". Your dress turned out very well.

Love the dress. Your review is great and I love the fact you used a quality fabric. Congrats.

Pretty, stylish dress. Congratulations on your alterations. I need to make luxury sized ones, too, and it sometimes deters me from sewing for myself. Your success is very inspiring. Great review. Sue
