According to the Big 4 size chart, I'm a 10 and I make all the time a 6 or a 4 (depending on what's available). This is a very nice dress, trendy and comfy. Pretty easy to make as well, I think.

This dress looks very nice on your daughter. It turned out very well in a knit. Good to know about the sizing running large.

Nice work. I would love for my teenage DD to try sewing a dress like this, but I think the sewing gene skipped a generation with her!

Awesome dress and leggings!!! One thing about using a stretch fabric with a non-stretch pattern: You need to compensate for the extra "ease" that will be created by using a knit. Depending on the percentage of extra room the knit will give you going down a size or two will give you the correct amount of ease. The other method is to fold out the percentage of excess vertically in the pattern. Sara Veblen has written articles for Threads magazine about handling knits. Great dress!

Like mother, like daughter-- you make such beautiful things, and now so does your girl! Tell her she did a beautiful job. BTW, I often find the same thing with kids patterns-- they sometimes (but not always!) run VERY big. I don't know why they do this, but they do. Great save with the measuring beforehand.

Bravo to you and your daughter! This is a very current and terrific dress. I love the color. Thanks for the tips on making it in a knit.

This looks great! I love the way it looks in a knit and may try it myself. A nice variation might be long sleeves. You and your daughter did a fantastic job!
