I'm sorry to hear your experience was disappointing. Thanks for the reminder about the sizing of vintage patterns.

Sorry to hear about the sizing problem... glad it is still wearable and thanks for the detailed review!

Hopefully it will be comfortable for the warm weather, anyway - loose fitting garments tend to be cooler. And the linen fabric is perfect for that. It is nice with that pretty abaya.

I'm sorry this pattern didn't work out for you, but I'm glad you got a working under-dress out of it. :)

A nice fabric and a working outfit - glad you could get use from it. We learn with every garment we make.

Sorry the pattern didn't work for you, but thanks for the review. Maybe you should only wear it in the wind... it looks so dramatic under the abaya with the wind blowing!
