Fabric: Cotton/poly jacquard from Joann's - has sufficient body for the neckline... (part of my wearable muslin stash.)
Cut & Size: 12 bodice with 1.5 inch FBA, graded to 14 hips.
The dress is super cute on the model, but I was really sold on the included FBA adjustment in the instructions. This was my first woven princess seamed garment. The instructions are excellent and I managed to make the adjustment so that there are no popping buttons!
During the making, I grew increasingly worried about the tightness of the skirt. I carry a lot of volume in my legs, so a narrow skirt usually does not work on me, AND my one requirement of any garment is to be able to ride a bike in it. (Dutch style!) It ended up tighter than I am used to, but with the back vent and one undone front button, I can pedal along on my vouwfiets. I doubt I could get a leg over the diamond frame, but that's okay. I'm not going touring anytime soon.
