I LOVE this dress! I can assure you that I am not as slim as this dress makes me appear, but the design, shape, dark side panels and careful shaping to the center panel creates an illusion that makes the wearer look slimmer and smoother. I've combined mine with a border print for the center panel but this dress also looks great in a solid too. Make this dress loose and figure skimming or really turn some heads with a figure hugging look and some vibrant colors. Looks best with a patterned or brighter central panel and darker side panels to emphasise your shape. Features: * Scooped neckline with binding. * Slightly A-Line skirt * Center back seam for perfect fitting * Princess seams front and back * Use dark panels on the outside for a slimming effect * Shaped panels front and back * Wide shoulders * PDF download with full step by step photo instructions You can see examples of this dress from the pattern testing team at BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Previous experience in sewing knits is recommended. SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS For 34-42 bust, up to a 46 hip
