Oh, and yes, you look FAB in it. The colour suits you perfectly, too! :)

Good advice, thanks. The muslin does seem like a great idea. Naturally we are all unique, and after looking at all these reviews it seems crucial to that smooth, slimming line that we cut the length of the top & waist pieces to fit our unique shapes. To that end I'm not sure this is rightly classed an "Easy" pattern, you know?

Such a special dress on you, bravo! Great advice to make muslins although I dislike taking the time.

What a pain to have to take out the stitching on those triangular waist pieces and redraft them, but I think it was worth the effort cause the fit looks great. It is very flattering on you.

Beautiful; you and the dress! Message received loud and clear: I Shall make a muslin. Many thanks for the revue.

This is on my list to do. Thanks for review. I really love the look of the dress. Thanks for pointing out the back alignment or better non alignment.

Stunning! You did a great job on the fitting of this, it was certainly worth the unsewing and resewing.

Nice work! I can imagine myself getting pretty frustrated trying to match seams like these. The seams and shaping maketh the dress and this is one flattering dress on you.

Beautiful dress! In spite of years to the contrary, I have become a fan of making muslins for most major projects too.

Your version turned out great. I completely agree about making a muslin. I have this pattern and I think I'll make it up for a winter outfit.
