dress - learn to sew

I learned a lot from making this dresss. Unfortunately the biggest issue was selecting the right pattern size. It is a little big for me so this dress will be given to someone else and I will remake it for myself in a smaller size. I'm waiting to hem it until the person tries it on. It was a learning experience!!!

Love your choice of fabric and how you laid out your pattern to create a lovely diagonal movement of the flowers up the dress front. Nice job--doesn't look like a beginner!

I purchased the DVD and when it asked what size pattern. I chose my normal dress size of 14. Well the pattern dimensions for 14 are smaller than me. What do I do
kauleenpf17494862 answered:
Pattern sizes are not equal to right to wear sizes. Act like the pattern sizes say A,B or C. They don’t mean anything except labels. Take your measurements and grade the pattern to your measurement otherwise it won’t fit.
