Thank you! I had to do the full bust adjustment per Linda's instructions. In the past I always adjusted my patterns by adding some length to the torso before cutting out the fabric. I learned from this class that the adjustment needed to be made to the bust instead. Wish I had learned this many years ago. I have been sewing for a lot of years off and on.

The dress looks perfect! Nice job!

I hope my dress looks as nice as yours when it is done! I had almost given up on sewing dresses by the time I had a D cup (1 cup size increase with each child! I'd lose the weight, but never the larger bosom!) I've always had to add a total of 2.5" to the torso of almost any pattern. But now I add 1.5" well below the bust, and do the full bust adjustment instead. Much better results! All dresses, RTW or made from patterns, ALWAYS have waists that are too high for me. And that looks ridiculous.
