This is a highly feminine pattern with lovely details. Although it is listed as for a 34" bust, by cutting for the wider seam allowances, it worked for my 36" bust. The pattern calls for a front or side zipper but I found it easier to make a center back seam and insert an invisible zipper there. I also skipped the sash and shortened the dress about 6 inches to fall at the knee for a more modern look. All in all, it's a delightful garment.
