Very cute dress. Great workmanship. Your detailed review will be very helpful to anyone else who wants to make this pattern.

Thank you for all your nice comments. Yes, you can wear a regular bra with this. I'm quite sure it was designed with that in mind.

Nice work! I love that color. Glad to "see" you.

A very nice version. Can you comment on undergarment requirements? Can you wear a standard bra with it?

Your dress turned out very pretty, and I am sure it looks lovely on.

Your sundress is extremely cute and well worth the effort you made to change the pattern to suit your shape and construction techniques.

Great dress! Seeing yours made me think that I'm going to have to do this one sooner rather than later. Would you mind linking to which SBA you used, Gertie's or the other one Sarai links to? TIA

Your version is among the cutest I've seen. It is really nice. I love these patterns but, like you, prefer the B cup patterns. Thanks for a very helpful review.
