I had no idea what to call this one.  I'm terrible with titles....
It may not look scandalous from the pictures, but for me, it is ridiculously low cut.  Which means I need to find a way to wear it where I don't fall out  Shocked Which would be embarrassing to say the least.

Some detailed shots:

It's the first pattern from one of my Burda magazines that I've actually finished.  Those directions get so confusing sometimes.  The only real problem I had with it was that all the gathering at the front made for a lot of fabric in a small amount of space, so the seam was really stiff.  I also sewed up the front about an inch to try and help with the plunging neckline, but it wasn't enough.  I'm afraid anything else would ruin the dress though.  Double-sided tape may be my last option, lol.

Anyway, I was happy with how it turned out, I liked the fabric Smiley  (it is semi-sheer, but you can't really tell)  I'm sad that the bright orange lining doesn't show anywhere, but oh well.

That's all!  Thanks!

I like it, I think it looks great as is, but if you'd be more comfortable, you can always wear one of those fitted tank tops in a solid color under it  Smiley

I was happier then with no mindset.

You could always sew a small triangle piece of fabric between the bust to help with the falling out.  Or you could wear a thin chemise/tank top underneath. Smiley

I may have to stitch on some fabric to see how it would look, thanks for the suggestions!

That dress looks great on you! I love the fabric you chose too.

That's a nice dress Smiley. The fabric is really pretty. I think it would look cute with a cami (black would even be easy to find) underneath it if you'd be more comfortable with a more covered up look.

Stop being so damned positive. Staring at the sun only blinds some one. By only looking at the positive, you miss an entire beautiful world of shadows and colors. Don't be overly negative, be realistic. The world is so much more complex and beautiful that way.
