You did a great job on the twist top which is completely closed. So many of these twist tops are not.

Both dresses are beautiful. Thanks for the tip on the underbust seam for a fuller bust.

They both look great. I especially like the light print. Really good choice for the dress style.

Very lovely dresses - both of them. This is a great design to use that large print - well done.

AuntieShel, the bust coverage is great. I'm a C cup & didn't need to do a FBA, just needed to lower that seam. (On an A or B cup the original seam would be in the right place) The V-neck is not low either, & the way they shaped the neckline there is actually more fabric there than on most twist tops, which gives it a nice sweetheart sort of look & more coverage.... The last photo showing off the new improved underbust seam shows you what I mean.

Such pretty dresses. The floral prints are both so nice. Twist fronts are really flattering and you worked out the fit beautifully!

Both dresses are very nice. I like the light one best.

Ooh, I love these dresses. I must pull this pattern out and make it up-yours are so inspiring. How is the bust coverage, ie, how low is the V?

These look great, I especially like the dark one. Very lovely, both!

Two beautiful dresses! Love the fabrics! I like the flare skirt that you added to the dress.
