Additional Notes

This PDF pattern includes all pattern pieces and instruction with illustrations.

I really liked all the options, there were great suggestions for fabrics and the tutorial was easy to follow. I made my muslin in a drapey rayon. The only change I made was to remove height (I'm only 5'3) and it came out extremely wearable, the size chart was spot on for me. This was my first Chalk and Notch pattern and certainly won't be my last.

I loved this pattern and am looking forward to making it again. Next time, I may modify the pattern and make a maxi dress!

This is a great pattern and easier to fit because of the looser style and waist ties. If you are tall make sure you add enough length because it is a shorter block.

I love this pattern so much! It came together much quicker than I thought it would after I had everything cut out. I also didn't realize that there were separate pattern pieces for the interfacing, so make sure you pay attention to that!

The pattern has clear and concise instructions. The instruction booklet is also interactive so you can easily jump to different portions of the instructions with ease!

The Fringe pattern is great! The PDF goes together perfectly and the instructions are top notch. It was so much fun to sew.

The Fringe Pattern is very clear, and includes thoughtful illustrations and instructions. Also included is a short list of steps, for more advanced sewists.
