Good job, boobs aside :)

I really like this except for the smooshing, of course. It is reminiscent of a Burda sundress with the angular skirt. Do try it again.

i like the dress on you a lot. if ever you feel ambitious, make a new bodice only of white linen and replace the blue, tight one. you look cute in it!

I did this one in a similar fabric and it does use a TON of fabric. Mine was maybe a tad stiff. I did an fba which helped, but for some reason the shoulders are VERY narrow. Fit on the top is just...odd. I love the dress, but it is not as comfortable as it should be. Will have to try it on and analyze and see if I want to do another. Will have to be convinced because of the quantity of fabric it uses.

Well...not that mooshed....I like the look of it on you! The only thing is- if it is not comfortable then it is not as much fun to wear. I do hope you will wear it some though. I can't wait to make one of these for myself. Your review was very helpful!

It looks lovely on you, gorgeous colour. If you are unhappy with the bodice (looks good to me) you could replace it with jersey? I always think this pattern top is jersey, and am surprised that it's designed for woven fabric

Really lovely on you! (squished boobs aside) Would it be worth adding an "aftermarket" modified gusset at the sides? It's just such a lovely color & fabric!

I seem to be copying your style of late. I have almost finished making my version except our approaching winter has got in the way. I actually did a muslin first and found it uncomfortably tight putting it on, even with a side zip, so I added a back seam with zip. I like your fabric and think the dress is flattering in a relaxed way.

First, that is a pretty dress! Second, I was going to suggest the same thing that JillyBe did - a little gusset at the upper side seam to relieve the boob squishage - though it doesn't look bad, but I can imagine it's not the most comfortable. It's cute!

I love this on you - mushed boobs and all - first look I thought "doesn't she look so cute" am sorry it didn't turn out as well as you would have liked - I think JillyBe has a good solution!

VERY cute, and you wear it so well (as you do EVERYTHING). :o) That's great information to have about the bust being so close-fitting. That would be a fatal error on my part. :o(

You nailed it with your styling. It is sweet, swingy, summertime and you look right in it. Way better than the Vogue Vamp. Owie about the mooshed boobs! I shudder to think about moi . . . Wear it with a little shrug if you don't want to redo with one of the good ideas here.

Looks good on you, I think.

Very pretty, perfect for an afternoon garden party

I'm liking the idea of the gusset fix as this is too cute not to wear or be uncomfortable.

Yes, this is fabulous! I keep eyeing this dress in my stash. A woman in my sewing group wore one last Saturday. She used a TNT bodice pattern and laid it over this one. Even though I do not have much boobage, I think I might try that. And, as others have said, it looks absolutely great on you!

I like it a lot, really sweet dress. Too bad it is uncomfortabel on you, it looks very pretty!

Sorry about the bodice problem, but this looks very cute and I'm glad it can still be worn!

Thanks for a very helpful review. Just what I needed before putting scissors to fabric.
