Thanks, everyone! CarolynC, yes, I just went for it. I had twice the called for fabric in my stash, so it wouldn't have been a big deal if I had had to re-cut the bodice.

You look amazing in your new dress. The fit is wonderful. I recently bought this pattern and some Amy Butler fabric with which to sew it up. When I took the pattern into the quilt shop to buy the fabric the proprietors went gah-gah. With your great review added to the others I'm looking forward to sewing this dress. Question: Did you do a muslin or did you just go for it? (I'm thinking of just going for it.)

What an adorable dress this is on you! Looks terrific! Wish I had a waist so that I could wear that style, you lucky girl. Hope you'll make a couple more so you'll have a wardrobe of pretty dresses for summer. Sue

This is really cute on you--that pattern is a great match for your hourglass figure. You'll have a lot of fun making up more of these in vintage-inspired fabrics!
