I am enjoying your reviews very much this Friday evening. I am upset, though, because I am a pattern addict, I can't see the pattern! Harumph! I like your ideas for eyelet...very cool.

Hmmm... i don't know why that is. When I went in to edit the review, it still has a link to the pattern...? Thanks for your kind words!

Nice save on the dress. It's a good idea and I'll keep it in mind in case I run into this problem in the future.

Very nice. I too am currently working on a wrap shirt in a light steel gray eyelet....that is turning out to be too much work went into it too. Anyway, you look great in your dress. I'll check back for the pattern. Great job. :)

great innovative save on the 'too small' problem. Looks very nice on you.

Very cute! Congratulations on your ''aha''* problem solving! *In design that's what you call turning a ''problem'' into something wonderful!

I've had Erin's Dress a Day blog entry on this saved forEVER because I love, love how this looks. It's so pretty and feminine and very creative problem-solving that turned into a great design feature.

Very pretty dress. Have you tried doing a full bust adjustment? That might solve the too- small problem for your next dress.

I really ike your dree - I thought it was a blouse at first - would love to see the whole thing. I'm not getting a link to the pattern either.

Your photo is so tantalising - it looks very nice at this angle, but can we see the whole dress? I love your solution - saving things is great. btw, there's no link to the pattern on my view of this review either.

Beautiful dress. Your alterations are so well crafted that no one know your unique front was a problem solver. Great looking dress!!

What a great idea - so great, I won't be surprised if some people use it deliberately. (They aren't mistakes, they are design opportunities.) I'll 2nd slanden99's suggestion - stay w/ the smaller size but do a full bust adjustment (see message board pinned topics for info).
