You look great in this dress! Love the fabric and design. I am a bit challenged by that long curved seam and hoping you can help me: currently pinning front to side front and finding that the side front is almost 2" longer than the front. I double checked my pattern pieces and indeed that is how the pattern is drafted. So I take it you just "eased" that extra 2" so top and bottom of the long seam meet. Is that correct? Any guidance would be most appreciated!

A lovely dress. I have this pattern and am so looking forward to making it up WHEN I find a nice fabric to do it justice. Love the fabric you've used.

Great dress ArtAttack! Thanks for all the tips on the insets as I was wondering about the layout.

This is fabulous - love, love your version of this! It looks so flattering on you, what a great dress! I completely agree with you on the side insets and lack of additional match points. I was going nuts and was wondering if I was alone - that's a long way to ask us to wing it! = )

Very pretty dress & you look great in it! :) I agree with you on favouring neck binding over turning and stitching!

I agree with all the reviews. The fit is amazing and the print really compliments it too. I have to say that it really compliments your lovely figure. I think I'll have to shed a few pounds & tone up before attempting this one. lol Thanks for the motivation!
