Thanks for your comments on my B5559. I wish I had read your review first about basting the fold line, that would have been helpful for me! I'm going to put bra strap holders in mine to keep the bra straps from showing. Like you said, that's annoying!

Love your idea of making this a tunic, I have this pattern and will get much more use from it then a dress.
