Lemon Shelf Bust Dress

I love shelf bust dresses, but they’ve been an irritation for me. Every pattern I’ve found cuts across the bust, not under, and the RTW dresses are way out of my budget. Enter lekala 4519. This pattern actually sits underneath bust, gives you more fullness and umph. Perfect, right?!?

Bust boost!

I’d never worked with a Lekala pattern before, and I have to say, it was a very interesting experience. You enter your measurements, and their software creates a custom pattern for you, to your measurements. Or so it says. I didn’t find it to be quite so easy, as you can see by the short skirt length!
