A nice casual dress pattern in two lengths. I made View B, the maxi dress with a cheat’s FBA to the front bodice by adding 1inch to the center front of the bottom of the bodice, tapering to nothing at the side seam.

This is wearable but only with a camisole underneath or as a beach coverup. The bodice has extremely deep armholes in the larger sizes – these need to be raised by around 1inch to cover my bra band which is on prominent display in this version. Also the keyhole back needs to be raised for the same reason. An easy enough fix for the next version.
