Good day to you, SavageCocro. I was very happy to see your reply. Meggipeg did such a great job showcasing the pattern, I had to have it. I purchased it at your web site, even if I will need to grade it down to a smaller size for my use. I am willing to take the chance. I found a tutorial that might help with your e-Pattern file. The author does mention using Photoshop Elements 8.0 that came on her computer, but it is only to write the text on the pattern pieces. I use Paint.Net for image editing. It is a high quality, free to download program, and the basic functions are easy to use or find in the Help screen.

The pattern is now graded but unfortunately there doesn't seem to be a soul on the planet available to manipulate the pattern file in to a tiled/paged .pdf. So if anyone out there knows someone who creates e-patterns, I'd love to connect! I do not have the Adobe Photoshop programs. Until that happens, I can only offer a size Medium. Meg is rockin it, as always! Good luck!

Your fashion eyes have excellent vision to see the possibilities -taking out some of the fullness, solid neckband with print dress, sheer border at the hem. It says the pattern is only in the size Med with 36" bust. The loose shift could easily be graded. Could the neck pieces be graded down by simply tucking out the width at the center front and back?

ABSOLUTLEY OUTSTANDING. Divinely done! Thank you so much for the glowing review. I agree, the DDD is billowy, so a reduction of the side seams can be warranted. This just came out gorgeous, Meg. You're a gem!

Absolutely gorgeous. The sheer black band addition is genius. Thanks for pointing out the versatility of the pattern - yes, it would make a great top, too.
