Thanks for you kind comments....For me the lack of a bust dart is not a problem. I am only a B cup, carrying my weight below the waist, but she designs for the larger woman so I am sure that she takes all shapes into consideration. She actually drapes on real large size women rather than just grading up from a smaller size. I get the best fit of my life with her patterns. Give her a try....I think you will be pleasantly surprise.

You have the most wonderful taste in fabrics and combinations. I've looked at this and some of Coni's other patterns but worry because there is no bust dart. Do you find that a problem for fit?

Thanks to you all for you kind remarks. Do give Connie's patterns a try...i think that you will love them as I do. btw..... I didn't do all this in a weekend.....more like over the past year....just never quite got around to getting them photographed and doing the reviews. When I get caught up I will try to stay more current.

Thanks for the review! I was wondering if this would be sack-like, but it looks wonderful! I love that the zipper is unnecessary. Thanks again!

You have been sewing your fingers to the bone girl. Wow! Another wonderful dress! OK, I will split the difference---you keep this one even though I love it, and I will take the flower print one. I don't want to be too piggy after all your hard work!

Beautiful dress and beautiful you - now that I have seen this made up I may buy it but before - well the drawing on the envelope is not encouraging to say the least!! Thanks for the review
