Did you have a problem with this pattern? I had to resize the bust in view B 3 times. It would not work according to the pattern specs. This is my version of it:

I love your plaid.

hmm - I don't think I had to many problems. The fit is pretty good (I think I got lucky). I'm to lazy to make a muslin and so hope to do a little better this year on the fitting side of things. (and with the documenting of things).

I really like how you used the bias tape on your dress. It really upped the vintage feel.

I never do muslin. I am too impatient. I am only doing muslin now and I have been sewing for nearly 5 years. The only reason why I am doing a muslin is because it is a vintage suit pattern for a guy.

I am not sure if the fit was because I am not the "average" bust. I used the bias tape because view C had that criss-cross and I wanted to emphasize that and carry it to the hem.
