this pattern is incredible, it's also really easy to make. it took me about 2 hours, start to finish that includes cutting it out. i also had to alter the top because i am not busty at all, but it was really easy to alter! i'm making more dresses from this pattern. i also cut mine shorter, because i didn't have enough fabric to make it so i thought i'd cheat a little.

For anyone interested in making this pattern really quickly, just use stretch fabric and remove the zip.  Gives a much better fit as well.  See my example in vintage fabric.

Love the orange floral one by the way sexylovekitten

I know most of you finished making this a long time ago, but I'm making this pattern right now and I'm having a little bit of trouble.  Everything was fine until I went to sew the midriff piece onto the bodice piece.  The midriff is bigger around than the top, so I'm afraid to sew it on because I don't want it to be all bunched up! (I hope this makes sense, if only I could draw a picture)

Did anyone else encounter this problem? I know I can just take in the side seams on the midriff piece to make it fit, but perhaps it's supposed to be how it is to fit properly... and maybe doing that will make the bottom not fit on right.

Anyways, if any one has made this and has any ideas, let me know Smiley


[EDIT:  I gave up waiting for an answer so....what I ended up doing was doing a machine basting stitch on the midriff piece alone, and then adjusted it so the extra fabric was distrubuted evenly... and then I just sewed it.  It seemed to work.  I just thought I'd update in case anyone else has this problem in the future... and I also feel like I'm talking to myself... haha]

You're not talking to yourself, lol. I haven't sewed this yet either, but I plan on it one of these days. Maybe when the Spring fabric starts rolling in. I'm going to make this one and the Luau dress. Smiley Thanks for the heads up just in case I run into trouble!

I'm so used to altering patterns because my waist tends to be much more defined than most patterns and I like to clothes to fit snuggly on my waist that I had already altered the midsection and didn't notice....
