This is the dress I made for Jolene. She will be wearing it to my wedding. She is very pleased with the dress and I am very happy that it turned out so well. It looks great on her, hopefully I will get a pic with her in it. She has a great figure and fills it well! It went together with very little if any cursing.... which is unusual for me. The bust measurement was right on a size 12 with the waist 1 over. The fabric has a little stretch to it so I left the waist and bust as it was. I used an invisible zipper which looks great and smooth down the back. The pattern fits close to the rib cage and under the bust sooooo the correct lifting bra is very important. It is for a Jamaican beach wedding. It will be perfect.
