Dress with Peter Pan collar. This pattern is for PETITS, or people no taller than 5’ 2". The shoulder-to-bust, shoulder-to-waist, shoulder-to-hip and shoulder-to-hem measurements are 1-2cm. shorter than a regular-sized pattern. I’ve listed the size equivalents next to the petit sizes for reference, but remember the difference in lengths.
