Thanks for your review. I have this pattern and I will be sure to use a firmer fabric or interline. I am built just like you and I do not think you need to adjust the bust. It looks nice, front and back. Your zipper is truely invisible! Well done. Thanks again, Cindy

Your thougths about fabric choice are very helpful. And, your dress looks very nice!

I think it's a very classy looking dress, and very flattering on you.

When I saw your photo I thought that the dress fit very nicely and was flattering. I didn't notice a tummy at all! It looks very nice on you.

MelC, I think this soft and lightly drapey dress is more flattering on you than you realize. I don't think the under bust gathers provide too much fabric for your bustline; I would not bother doing an SBA unless in the future, unless using a stiffer non-drapey fabric. The skirt skims your hips very nicely and you've chosen a flattering length. Make more of these. -Lily
