I hope some day that I can fit a dress as well as you do. This looks fantastic. Special thanks for the tips about making this style work for the busty figure. Like you, I always hesitate on this style of dress.

Congratulations. I'm rather busty and would never look at this pattern seriously. But it is really flattering on you. maybe I should reconsider. . Like the stitched down pleats.

Ah this dress is on my list and it's so good to see it on a figure that looks like mine. You did a great job and this is lovely on you!

That looks very cool & summery.

This dress is really summery and again you got a good fit. I have some seersucker that might work.

Super Cute! I was flummoxed too about the pleat basting. I ended up taking mine out though. It looks great on you and I love the fabric!

I purchased this one recently and want to make it up asap - your version is wonderful! That green and white seersucker is perfect for this dress.

You look great in your new dress. I second your comment about Vogue's spring and summer dress patterns. They're terrific. I'm working on 8726 right now. Thanks for sharing the informative review.
