I love your designs and have made several of your patterns and I want to make the Everywhere easy knit dress pattern too. However, when I download I get the directions to sew, but only 1 page for the pattern itself.

Hi Margaret. Please check out the instructions on how to print the pattern. It does come as a single sheet and the print settings you choose tile it according to your paper size. If you are still stuck, please email me at deby@so-sew-easy.com

This pattern didn't turn out well for me, but it wasn't the fault of the pattern! The knit I chose was too lightweight and the neckline turned out way too big and floppy. I love the way the rest of the body fit, but it wasn't salvageable. I think I might give it a try with a heavier knit and modify the neck to a V.

Don't despair! You may be able to salvage the loose neckline with some pleats that fold at the corners or from the center outwards. Failing that, cut if off just under the bust, make a new bodice and use the rest as an empire line dress. hate to see anything go to waste.

I've just printed the pattern to use on a fantastic knit fabric I bought at the weekend. Can I just check if the seam allowance is included or do I need to add it on?

Seam allowances are included on this pattern, nothing to add. At the top of the sewing instructions, it gives the width, 5/8 inch (1.25cm) included as standard on all sizes. Good luck with the sewing.

The pattern comes as a zip file to include the instructions and pattern both as separate PDF documents. It sounds like your Ipad doesn't have the right app/software to use Zip files. You can find it for free here - https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/winzip-leading-zip-unzip-cloud/id500637987?mt=8
Hope that helps.

Hi Deby, I would like to make this dress but longer, to fall just below the knee. I'm size 3 and 5ft 5in. Would 2 yards of material be enough?

Providing your fabric is wide enough to be able to get both pieces of the dress cut out next to each other, then the length of fabric you will need will be the total length from your shoulder to the hemline, plus a few inches for your seam allowance. If you have a very narrow fabric and can only cut one piece from the width, then you'll need twice as much. Hope this helps.

How would I go about making this sleeveless?

I don't this this dress adapts well to a sleeveless version because of the nature of the wide sleeves. If you simply cut them off at the shoulder, the armhole and shape would be all wrong. Better to try a different pattern if you want a sleeveless dress.

I was wondering if you had any tips on enlarging this pattern for larger clothing sizes.

Tiffany, if you look at the way the existing sizes increase, then you should be able to follow the same increases and draw the pattern a little larger around the outside. But, as we get larger, our proportions change so its not the perfect solution. For example, just because a person has wider hips, it doesn't mean they necessarily have wider shoulders. Test it out on some cheap remnant fabric and refine the fit before cutting your good fabric.

Julie, if you read the instructions that come with the pattern, it shows you there how to print so it will fit to whatever paper size you are using. There is a screen print too, to help. If you can't figure it out, please send me an email to deby@so-sew-easy.com and I'll be happy to help.

Dress and pattern turned out great. I had trouble printing the pattern but when I followed the directions in "how to download my patterns" I realize that when you chose poster print, I separated the pattern and printed all the pieces. Putting it together was another thing all together. LOL
