Kudos to you for making the dress! It looks just like it!

I think what Candreya is trying to say is to add darts underneath the bust (and maybe in the back) to give it a more fitted look.  Smiley

From what I could tell, the picture of the original had alternated a strip of fabric and a ruffle along the bottom. So I have some strips, some ruffles, and some big lace in the back.

Great job on the dress - I think it looks fabulous! (I'm used to the flat-chested look... AA in the house! Wink )
I had to reply because it cracked me up that you stole it out of the doctor's office; I stole the same exact page from a nail salon in June. Now I have to get to work on it!
