Nice dress-the trim makes it special. I also have trouble with the bodice of Colette patterns...very narrow and small but with some side boobage :-) I must follow you here. Thanks for the review of this lovely dress.

@cynthia: generally, the colette bodice sloper seems to be more for a woman with a larger bust size and/or more curves in the bodice than i have. i'm certified IBTC, have a short waist, a long torso, a very slight pear and narrow shoulders, so i end up having to re-draft completely any bodice i may be working on between the differences in the dart sizes, dart widths, and bust point placement.

Yes. The fit is superb. That's what drew me to your review! Beautiful detail to the ruffle. Why is the Collette bodice not a fit for you? Thanks!
