Sadly, I purchased this and made it halfway up before realizing that the cup-size on this dress was half of what I needed. I just didn't realize that the bust measurement didn't take a D cup into account and now I have a half-sewn dress with a ridiculously cut bodice.
I'm not much for fussing with pattern alteration, so I will happily mail this to someone who wants it. Cut in a size 16, for a B-cup.
That is the PERFECT pattern for the wool my mom gave me! Eureka!
This isn't just any wool ... this was a piece of wool grandma got mom when mom was still in high school.
