This dress looks really nice on you. I am getting ready to make this pattern for the first time, so it was nice to see your review. I am very excited to be able to make it without having to do an FBA!

Love this dress. It is a great pattern isn't it. I had to take that dart too and did not have to do a FBA

The problem with this pattern is it makes a large bust look wayyyy huger than it is.Good for small busted ladies.

LillyJill, I think that is an unfair comment. It's not a bust minimizing pattern, but how do you know if makes someone look bigger if you don't know the person? And why do you care? I'm big busted and looking at this photo made me want to make the dress.

Oh, but I think it is a great print for a summer dress! You should definately make another one.

Thanks for the nice comments...Lillyjill that was kind of rude and personally I think it actually makes my chest look smaller, not that I care really. I am big busted and perfectly happy with my shape.

That is adorable, and I LOVE the fabric. It's perfect for summer, I bet you wear it a lot. I must invest in some of the Collette patterns, they are all so cute!

I just read lillyjill's comment and you should ignore it. It looks great on you and, as another big busted lady, you are absolutely right to be happy with your body. Plus, how nice is it to have a dress that fits properly in that area? Pretty awesome, especially when it turns out this adorable.

Lovely. You may enjoy this discussion:, why indeed should we attempt hide our beautiful curves?

Ooo! This is lovely. You did a beautiful job and the fit looks very flattering. I've been a little scared of Collette Patterns, but reading your review makes me want to run out and try one. Thanks so much! :)
