Thank you for the detailing on the FBA, I'm thinking about this dress but being a DD too I was concerned about that bodice section and the low back. Your review is immensely helpful!

A gorgeous dress, especially in blue Carline. I love that fabric - I've made a shirt in it myself.

Awesome! And I really mean that. The entire outfit is stunning. I want one! I was just telling my husband how much nicer these vintage paterns are, and yours is a perfect example. Classy, versatile, completely gorgeous. Ps, love the colors on you, as well.
