This is gorgeous on you! You ended up with a great fit, even if it did take a lot of work. Love the fabric too.

I loved this dress when I first saw it in the magazine. And your fabric is just delicious! Just one non-sewing question : what do you wear underneath such a deep plunging back? a corset-type bra? I'm really curious since this is the big hurdle stopping me from making several back-baring styles. Great dress!

thank you all so much! lakaribane- I have one of these bras that has fabric cups with a gel inside and clasp, but no straps at all. they are great for this and work really well too! kind of a pain to deal with, but worth it if you're getting dressed up. mine is called Nubra Ultralite.

This is stunning. Your unusual choice of colour makes this very distinctive and it fits you perfectly. Thank you so much for your detailed review, I'll be adding this pattern to my 'to do' list. You got my vote for the contest. Good luck!

@lakaribane- I recently found a 'low back bra converter' which works well for all dresses with low backs. You can use it to convert any bra which you have and lower the back. I live in London and got mine from John Lewis, but you can also get them online. Google 'low back bra converter' to find your nerest stockist.
