What are you most proud of? That it turned out so cute and fits!I made View B but found we needed more support in the bust area so added 1.5 inch straps. I also added the black band for across the top of the bodice and added the belt from view C but made it a bit narrower. I made the dress in size 16 for the bust and did a fba up to a D cup. I thenadjusted from there down to about a size 22-24.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? The pattern says self lined bra, but we needed a strapless bra for proper support. If you can't find a matching zipper, just change to an invisible one!

So cute! Great fit through the bust, too!
