Lovely dress, the zipper looks very pretty, it's a really elegant detail and I like the way you've made the back lower like the pattern rather than raising it like Susan recommend

I so love your dress that I am going to enrol in the course too - but I am not sure which pattern to get - I could be between the smaller and the larger pattern. Does the pattern run big or small - should I get the larger or smaller?

If you're going by the measurements on the envelope I almost always size down, my measurements would indicate 16-18 and I made a 14, letting it out a bit on the skirt, and taking it in a bit at the shoulders. The finished garment waist measurement on this pattern is 31" (from the pattern tissue)

Sorry that's 31" for the size 14.
