This thing of beauty is perfect for my curvy figure assuming I can get that waist measurement right. If the bodice is too short, it just won't work; I don't like empire garments tucked up under my boobs. I want a little space - at least! - below my bosoms. Now that I think of it, I wore a dress yesterday from Making it Big that hits just right. In fact, every empire dress from Making it Big fits me perfectly. Here's a short video of me dressed in a MiB dress posing with my dress form. (Very unattractive initial frame, but my smile improves the video in short order.)
Gotta run... I've got to go do a ton of Saturday stuff, but I promise to write a full tribute to the great Sue McCain soon.
