Additional Notes

This PDF pattern includes all pattern pieces and step-by-step instructions with illustrations.

This was easy to make and lots of fun! There are no closures to fuss with, either.


I really wish that the PDF had had a page with a printing layout--it would have been a great deal simpler to see which pieces were actually necessary for printing instead of having to print out the entire page range.
Also, you might want to check the overall size of the armscye if you make this. The original armhole base would have ended at the bottom of my bra on the side. It's an easy fix to change it, but be aware that it could be low on you.




I liked this dress so much that I'm sewing another this week!
