plus about 5". I just cut the skirt width after pinning it to the bodice. It is a tad poufy, but not too bad. Overall, the fit was awesome for the bodice and the instructions were easy to follow. Somehow I missed the step to encase the elastic, so its free flowing on the bodice, but it seems fine. Love love the patchwork I did for the bodice. Its adds some fun without being to busy using all black and white fabrics~ not that I am opposed to mixing it up!! I now have a fun basic black dress. :)

Jamie Dress Finished!
Wow! Had so much fun sewing this dress, the deadline for the sew along really helped me. Here's my take on it: The size I made after taking my measurements was one size larger than if I were to buy a dress at the store. I have a small bust so I didn't make the bodice one size larger as Sara recommended . I ended up cutting the front elastic smaller still to adjust further. For the skirt I used my ruffling foot and ended up using one WOF, (width of fabric) trimming the selvedges,
