This is a very pretty dress. Glad your first experience with KnipMode was so positive!

Lakaribane, I did not look at the length measurements. Now that you ask, I just looked at the measurement info in the pattern section of the issue and it looks like the back waist length is the fourth measurement down (ruglengte)?I compared that to the chart in the burda and it seems to be about the same as burda.I would compare the measurement chart in the petite issue and see if that number is smaller than in a comparable size of the regular sizes. Since this dress had a seam under the bust instead of at the waist it was not a problem for me. I hope this helps

Hi Mary! Thanks for the review. I'm 5' and, though I have a SUBSCRIPTION, LOL, I have yet to sew anything. I'm curious about the lengths of KnipMode. They had an issue with Petite Patterns and I could not get a straight answer from them (via email) on how the vertical measurements differed from the standard. (At least with Burda you're clear on this!) Did you choose the limited alterations because it's a knit? I alter knits as I do wovens.
