Def came out great, I was looking to try figure out what to do with my pattern, I prolly got it for buck or two at Jo-ann's, but thing is I prolly need a 6 or even a 4. I just hate thing how many patterns I have that are going to require me to resize them, is it worth it, can I find something similar that goes down to at least a 6? Bec I think Butterick runs big also so I've had to already take in size 6 in Butterick. I wish there was a group to join to share the pain of learning to sew bec clothes in the stores are too big, then finding out many of the patterns I want are too big also. Why is it so hard for them to make it go down 2 more sizes if they bothered to make all the other sizes, why do they feel in certain patterns oh someone smaller than that would never want make this dress. I don't get it, what makes them pick one pattern over another to start at 4 or 6? Even if I stuffed myself, I still wouldn't turn into a size 8.

Such a pretty dress! I think I bought this pattern recently, so your review is definitely motivation for me to sew this. It would be great for my upcoming trip to the beach.
