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

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.

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

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

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
