I have been looking at that sewalong... and really thinking about joining.
Oh, come on, do! It should be fun!
Hmmm, Zaftig's right, not much August left! I better go get my pattern!

In the end, only kindness matters.

I have your measurements more or less exactly, though I'm half an inch shorter.

I made the McCalls dress pattern. I added about two inches to the bust because I was concerned about having enough ease, but I probably could have gotten away without it. What I do regret is that I didn't make the bodice a little longer. It just seems a little short on me. I'll also warn you that its very low cut, at least on me. I end up wearing it with a tank underneath most of the time, so I don't flash bra at people. I think if I'd known it'd be that low cut, I could have easily altered the pattern when cutting it out so that the neckline would be higher.

This is how I look in the dress.


I don't think it makes me look dumpy or pregnant or lumpy around the waist, even though I'm not wearing a very good bra in the picture.
