THANKS for all your help, PittyPat!! ;)

Rhonda... yes, I made the bodice with straight sides - no darts. I did cut it a tad longer than I thought I needed for the 'blouson' effect - and needed it all due to my full bust. I did not cut the deep 'V' in front and facing - just eased the collar into the neckline. It slipped over the head without the deep V being cut. I didn't want to have to deal with a tie and opening in the center front. I added a wide bias tape on the inside at the waist seam and ran narrow elastic through it. Glad you got the OOP pattern. Have fun with it.

Hello!! Congratulations on your Prize!! I JUST received your OOP Simplicity pattern ;) Did you make the bodice up "as is", i.e., straight side seams with no darts?? THANKS!!

I admire your skill in adjusting one pattern, drafting another and them putting them together to create a beautiful garment. Nicely done! You look beautiful!
