So I made this dress from a pattern (yes, I'm sad to say it's not my *own* creation), but I liked it so much, I had to post pics. Unfortunately, I over-compensated for my boobs, and made it a little too big in the bodice area.  Undecided Off to eBay it goes (hence the silly faces - I'm trying to concentrate on getting a good pic of it while my kitty's trying to get my attention  Tongue)!

Are you sure you need to ebay it? The bust looks great to me!

It's actually quite loose in the back. It sort of sags down, and the bodice bunches. I just hiked it up to get good pics.

That is seriously cute.  What about taking it in at the sides?  I'd hate to part with such a cute dress.

It's fabulous! I love the cut and fabric choice. What pattern did you use? How would you rate it difficulty-wise? I'm trying to find a good first dress pattern for myself.

It's McCall's 4868. I wear a size 10ish, but I made a pattern size 12 with modified booby area. I'm pretty busty, too, (though this dress dwarfs me!), so I *always* compensate the bust. I love this dress so much, I'm going to make another one that fits.

Ohh yeah you could take it in at the sides, or what about adding two darts from the the  twaist up, one for each breast,that might work to tighten it up for you.  That would flow well with this cut of dress and tighten it at the same time.

The insides of the bodice are 'finished' so I cannot just take it in without totally taking it apart. I even added elastic to help, but it didn't quite work.  Sad

It was not hard - the directions were sort of hard to follow, but I've sewn enough to sort of do things on my own. The pieces are easy to put together, but there is a lot of hand-finishing.
