That is a lot of taking in at the waist! Wow, the original must be rather loose there... But your changes make the dress look more like the drawing, it is beautiful! Enjoy it.

Looks lovely on you. I can't wait to make it. I agree, much more flattering if you really take in the waist. Good sewing.

I've had this pattern for a while, and the fabric, and plan to make it soon. Thanks for such a helpful review. I'll know that I need to make it wider in the hip area.

Very nice. I recently bought this pattern, but haven't made it yet.

That's very cute! The ribbon under the bodice is a great touch.
