Pattern Description:

Enjoy this beautiful, timeless, dress that can be adjusted to fit your size body. If an exact measurement is not provided, simply add or subtract the difference for those stitches until you get your desired size.

Please be aware that because this is a vintage pattern, directions can be vague. I suggest you take each pattern slowly and if you get stuck you can always feel free to contact me personally.

Pattern requires knowledge of chain, sc, hdc, and basic garment construction. These patterns typically require blocking to ensure the proper fit and shape so be prepared to budget time for that as well.
