This was easy to sew, but very time consuming... I had to do a lot of it by hand. I didn't make any adjustments to the bodice. When I finished it, it was too big in the chest for the girl who wore it, so if I had time I would have taken it in a bit. Instead she wore clear or tan straps with it and pinned the top to it. I will try to get a better picture of the bodice. I think I had a sizing issue (I should have made a size smaller) rather than the pattern needing to be changed.

I'm in the process of making a muslin of this. Did you need to make any adjustments in this? The other review here, was a alittle vague, but said she had to make lots of changes. I'm thinking the back is looking too narrow, and that's BEFORE folding the back (which is 1 1/8 inch wide) on the foldline. Would it be possible for you post a close-up pic of the bodice.
