The fit is great and the leopard print is hot.

Very nice dress. Sassy style while still being work appropriate. Fun in your fabric as well. I hope you have a lady's style bicycle.

That looks great! Love the leopard fabric.

Because the slit ended up being so high (basically I folded the pattern up to shorten it but didn't take into account that I should reposition the slit), I do actually have enough mobility to ride a bike. As for the measurements, I'm almost exactly a pattern size 14, with a slightly bigger waist. I went down a size based on the finished measurements of the dress to get a more fitted look and there is still enough ease for a normal range of movement.

Wow, this is lovely. I've been attracted to this pattern since I've seen it, and yours looks great! Can you seriously ride your bike in this? :)

Yes, I'm curious about sizing as well. Based on the measurements printed on the tissue, I may go down to a 10 when I make mine.

Very nice! I like this dress, did the 12 fit well with your measurements? We need a picture of you riding that bike in it!
