Too bad about how the fit of this dress did not work out so well. I have this pattern and was looking forward to making it, but now I hesitate after you do not recommend it. Thank you for your review. Do you have any photos to share of how the bodice turned out?

I was planning in buying this pattern this week, but now I'm not so sure! I would also love to see a photo.

I'm so sorry, I do not have a photo! I think I was too annoyed and wasn't thinking before tossing the whole thing. Just make a muslin if you do try it, or like I mentioned before, try using the bodice lining for the bodice also. I think that would have turned out very cute! It is a bummer too that it's the type of bodice you really can't even try on to fit until it's all done.

:-( sigh, I was so looking forward to making this, I found the perfect fabric for it too. Thanks for the heads up, I'll make a bodice first from junk fabric to see what happens.
