I think that I started this dress back in August.  It's been shoved in the back of the closet unfinished until now.  I really thought that this dress was a lost cause because the fit was so poor in the bust but I just added four darts to it and it's the perfect fit!  I used McCall's 5313 and it was fairly easy - I always make a size smaller than I usually do in other patterns because they seem to always turn out to big.  I think that I really like it now.  I thought it made me look pregnant at first but I think I'm over it now.  I've got jeans on in the pic because NOBODY should see my legs in the middle of winter, it might cause blindness!!!
