I found it really easy to follow and very straight-foward to make. The only difficulty I had was that I underestimated my size and made a too small 8, but luckily I was able to add extra mini panels to make the zip fit! Also i didn't fit the pattern in the bust so I had to pleat the front down to make it more shapely Tongue





I'm thinking of making another one for spring (can't wait for summer down here in Australia!) in a cream/black polka dot cotton with maybe some tulle underneath without the bubble!  Grin

WOW! Looks like you were the best dressed there. Fabulous dress! Love love love the color and the bubble at the bottom. Was it hard to get it to stay up since it's strapless or not?

looks lovely! i'm making the green dress with the bow on it from thte same pattern  Smiley just wondering did you line yours with something? and if you don't mind me asking what size do you wear? because i wear around a size 4-6 in dresses usually, but i bought the pattern size up and the 8 seems like it would fit  in some places, lol but not others  Roll Eyes
