Thank you for the info on how to reduce the bodice-I feel confident I can make this look good now!

Your fabric with this pattern (and your alterations) is perfect! Your dress is really lovely!

Yes, when Vogue says "very loose fitting" they mean it. You were smart to downsize and the result is a beautiful dress. None of the other reviews were favorable. Congratulations!

Looks great! Thanks so much for sharing how you reduced the bodice - I've been wanting to make this dress but I was also worried about the hugeness of the top!

looks great and you made it fit nicely. I like that idea about adapting into a skirt, clever.
