Notions

A 10 inch (25cm) invisible zipper, thread matching your fabric, a machine needle matching your fabric type, a marking pen, scissors and pins. A loop turner will also be useful for straps.

    This pattern is awesome! The sizing is pretty true to street size and the instructions are very well written. I don’t have a finished product yet, but I will soon with how quickly this pattern comes together. My only complaint — the bust could really use some darts. They’re simple to add in and I would recommend them for anyone who is a bit bustier like myself (size 16, D cup, 250lb, 5’4).

    I love that you can pick what size paper to print. It made everything very easy. According the measurements, I was to go with a size 10 but I had to take it in probably 2 sizes. I also shortened the waist and about 3 inches off the bottom. I kept the lining the same length so it peeks through. Overall, I love this! I think you can easily make it without a lining for a more casual dress

    This is not worth $10 USD I spent 2 hours playing a damn puzzle game to put this pattern together and I couldn’t get anything to work with me on where it goes. I regret spending my whole day getting my supplies to make this just to be pissed after 2 hours of trying. DONT WASTE YOUR MONEY
