I've gotta say that I love this dress. I got married in it.

I made it again last summer for a sundress and it was my first really successful full bust adjustment. I think it's just a flattering dress on a lot of figures and a well put together pattern.

As for the easy vs not easy thing, I tend to ignore that stuff because it never seems quite accurate to me (except for the Vogue advanced ones - those I expect to be very complicated and tough). Still, I don't think I would rate this dress as really easy. It has a lot of pieces, a fitted bust and a zipper. It's not exactly an elastic waist skirt or a pair of pyjama pants.

I also tend to ignore the time estimates on some of the stuff labelled "easy". In my experience, all of those "One hour to sew" patterns tend to lie, but perhaps I'm just a slow seamstress.

Seriously!  I know they say the hour doesn't include cutting, pinning, pressing, or anything else, but they still take far more than an hour, for me at least.
