I hope someone can answer this! I normally wear a size 10-12 but in a fitted dress like this I wear a size 14. If I look at the measurements I should sew the pattern in size 20!!! I find that hard to believe. Does anyone know how close to retail sizes this dress actually comes to??

Your end result is adorable, but I agree that this pattern isn't as fun and versatile as it appears. On mine, I have to wrap the ties quite a few times to make them not huge and floppy, and I didn't find most of the tie options to actually be wearable.

Great review and nice final result! This was just the encouragement I needed today. Clunkers can be saved

Funny! I got this pattern for the top. That may not have been the wisest choice apparently.
