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!

@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.

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.
