Wow, great fit. Your pattern alterations appear to have been worth the planning and effort. I too have had my eye on this one but like you I felt that the alterations to petite the pattern were somewhat overwelming. Bravo to you for diving in and making such a lovely dress.

What a great dress. Thanks for "test-driving" the pattern and alterations for us petite folk. The lines are very flattering on you.
