Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think this seller is using the same pattern! I love all the possibilities!!!

I've made this dress before and I wasn't very happy with the end result--the chest area was to big and the straps were to long! I have since learned that I am rather short waisted. I think that I want to try it again (with some alterations) because yours is just so cute!

I just added this to my wists!  So so pretty.

And Hello Dolly - your problems with the pattern are actually what I need, I have a large chest and a long torso - I've had so many problems with short straps on dresses I buy in the store.

I just saw this pattern on the McCalls website and hoped somebody had reviewed it here, thanks!
You have a lovely dress too!

I've made this dress too (the exact same one in the pattern) and I also found the straps too wide. I may have narrow shoulders too but next time I'll adjust the placement of the back straps.

I bought this pattern, along with a wrap dress pattern, months ago... I have the pieces cut for the wrap dress but it was so daunting and my fears of mucking it up have me at a stand still... The sizing is off and before I do irreparable damage I stopped working on it until I can figure it out... I think I started a project too advanced for my simple skill level lol

I'm very new to patterns (I made scrubs for my sister about 5 or 6 years ago for halloween and they were so over-sized they fit my mom... so yeah.. not so good with patterns...) and now I'm too skittish to continue... I feel guilty when I mess things up, I hate to waste any kind of fabric!

Now that the weather is warming (ever so slightly in the garden state!) I think I need to just suck it up and make my dress!!! Good to know that the zipper instructions are "painless" bc I've avoided it thus far...

If I'm not too ashamed of it maybe I'll post a picture lol
