Additional Notes

This 77-page pattern includes all pattern pieces and step-by-step instructions with color photos.

I like all the options that come with the pattern. I can't wait to make it as a dress.


This was a fantastic pattern with very clear instructions on how to do every single set, I found the color photograph instructions very helpful and I love my finished dress.




The instructions were great and very clear. However, I had problems with the fit of the bodice. I started with the size that matched my bust and waist measurements perfectly, but found it was too big. The pattern doesn't provide any finished bust or waist measurements, which is really a pain.
