My sister is having her birthday party on St. Patrick's Day, so I made myself a cute dress for both occasions (as I am of Irish decent), the top came out a little big, nothing I'm not used to though, my breast are smaller then my stomach, so I always have extra on top.  sigh... Anyway on to the pictures...

The fabric I used for the skirt:


The fabric I used for the top:


The dress


And the dress again, but with my daughter in the picture... she thought it was so much fun running back and forth (I used the timer on the camera...)


comments and suggestions to make my tops smaller in the breast area. Let me know what you think!  Thanks for looking

That's a really cute dress!

I have the same problem- my bust is way smaller than my hips (Darn this pear shape!) A fairly easy fix is to make the top gathered or shirred. I can't explain it very well without a picture, sorry! The more detail there is on the top, the more it accentuates and makes you look a little bigger.

Great job! Smiley

Cute dress!

If you use patterns, try getting patterns that have all the sizes, and use a smaller size for your chest.  I've never tried it, though.  When using a pattern, I use what I think will fit, then adjust later.

Darts would probably help make this dress fit better.  Or maybe taking it in a small amount along all the seams on the top.  This dress fits you beautifully from the ribbon down.  If you edit it, please post pics!

that is sooo cute, I think darts might help the bust area.

I know how you feel, compared to the rest of me, my breasts are too small. I get frustrated sometimes with clothing. Today I went shopping and found the cutest dress ever but when I tried it on it fit perfectly everywhere except that it was strapless and the bust area on it was big and poofy looking, but very empty.

I love the fabric choices!!! Great job!

Ah cutee!!!  I also noticed if you scroll up and down real quick while looking at the top image (the green fabric) it looks wavey!  Pretty cool stuff.

It has darts.  Cheesy  I think I will try to take in the seams a little on the top.  This particular pattern was a multi size, but the bodice(s) were separate for each size, or I would have sized it down during cutting. That was my plan until I saw how the bodices were laid out.  I thought maybe it would fit o.k. since I wear a *shh* padded bra!   Cheesy.  I will post pics when I resize it, tho.  Thank you all for you compliments/comments.
