janelouise said... This site is very helpful in explaining the Full Bust Alteration. I have been slow to use this pattern for that very reason, however, this morning I reworked the pattern and cut out a dress. You look lovely in yours.

JJosieJo - I am getting at making patterns fit me. You should have seen some of the ones I made a year ago! I almost always need to do a sway back adjustment, and I have learned to cut the back and shoulders one size larger than everything else. That said, I still need to learn how to do a FBA. One thing at a time, right? Thank you all!

What a great fit! Do you normally make pattern adjustments or do patterns usually fit you well? Just wondering what adjustments I would need to make myself!

I think that the ruffle is lovely, especially with your fabric choice. The ruffle + fabric + simple pattern style = a perfect dress! Well done!
