Of course, I cut about 2 sizes smaller than the pattern said to (why so much ease in your patterns, people?!!!) The bands on the neckline gave me a little trouble, but I think that was do to my skill, rather than the pattern. The pattern has a few interesting features. #1, it has this "belt" of ribbon on the inside at the waist. There is a lot of weight hanging off of this bodice, and the belt helps keep the waist in place and give it a little structure. #2, the pattern uses a horsehair braid in the hem of the lining. I went to the fabric store and they didn't even know what this was. Well, here you go: it is plastic, not horsehair, and is a sort of loosely woven mesh that gives a very soft hoop effect to a skirt...really poofs out the bottom. (I am also wearing a petticoat in this picture). It is made by Dritz and comes in different widths and colors.
People just loved this dress. I highly recommend making this pattern if you like this sort of thing.
