It took me about a month and I redid the top several times before I found something I liked.  I used about eight balls of Rowan Calmer and used #6 US knit pick options circular needles. 

It definitely looks better on my body form due to the whole "bust" area and I suppose I could redo it to fit my own bust, but I don't think I want to even go there.

Adorable!  I love it.

By the way, what stitch pattern is that just under the bustline?   I can't quite see it (and I don't have any stitch pattern books yet, anyway, so I wouldn't be able to pull it from one). 

A great dress -- I hope you get lots of compliments on it when you wear it out!

Wow!...hello knockout Wink

...you know, I have the same situation; being of 'athletic build' isn't really conducive to glorious cleavage, BUT, you've got all the right stuff where it counts!...you look frikkin awesome in that dress from the waist down...and honey, from the waist up is what Victoria's Secret was made for Wink

Great job!! I think you should wear this dress every day!

That's amazing!! I think it looks gorgeous on you already but if you're still "yuck" about the bust area, three words: Push Up Bra. They have saved my life millions of times.  Grin

However, I think you don't need one at all. Just wear a big ol' necklace and you'll be set!
