Fantastic! I am starting to work on this pattern this week and hope it looks as beautiful as your dress.

I love the print you chose! Excellent job on tweaking the fit. I absolutely love how you placed the pockets, and as a fellow straight-hip gal, I plan on doing the same thing when I sew this pattern. Thanks for the great review!

Incredible fit--you look wonderful in your very sophisticated dress!

Wow! You did a great job! I am a D cup, too, and I would never have chosen this pattern, for fear of the tent look, but you really saved it and made it a wonderful fit. Plus I love the pockets, and how you re-arranged them so artfully. Well done!

It's been thanks to your wonderfully supportive sewing community here on pattern review that I got the confidence to start sewing! Let's hope the next dress turns out this well. Cheers!

Are you sure this is only the second item you've made? It is awe inspiring. Of course, the cute model helps :) !!! This pattern just move up to the top of my pile.

Absolutely wonder construction and beautuful dress. Does not look like a beginner made this dress.

Great dress and I love the material. You did a great job of altering it to suit your body. I agree - you are a natural.

Great dress, great first review, and smart alterations -- every D cup learns that lesson the hard way at least once!

What a flattering fit! You did a great job, and I like the idea of adding shape to your hips with the pockets. If only subtracting from my hips was that easy!

Gorgeous dress, you did a great job of altering this to get the look and fit that you wanted.

Great dress. Knits are easy, and the fit is more forgiving (not that you need that). You'll do fine

That came out great!

No one would ever think this was your second thing sewn. You have done a beautiful job on this. It is obvious you have natural talent. Fantastic job!

Super cute!! I have been debating whether or not to buy this pattern, and your post convinced me! I really like the addition you did of tucks at your waist. I find dresses like this look like a sack on me, but I'm going to try your tuck idea!Thanks for the review!

Very becoming. You did a great job. Congratulations on figuring out your alterations. You'll be a pro in no time.

You're a natural. Sounds like you did an underlining which is a great way to do a dress like this.

Great dress.

You are just a vision of springtime! Love the dress!
