    Yes, I am confused by this as well. I purchased this, and there are no real instructions. I am a novice, and I thought this was a great dress, but now I am stuck, and I don’t know where to begin.

    I have been waiting for someone to comment on this particular project. I downloaded the pattern and when I attempted to make this dress the side seams of the bodice and the skirt for the front did not line up. What I mean is after I used the same seam allowances for the bodice and skirt the seam did not meet. I cut both the top and bottom in the same size. Was I the only one who encountered this? Usually someone post a photo of their project but no one has posted any photos or made any comments. I scrapped my project because at that point I had added material to the bodice and this changed the integrity of the garment. I am by no means a novice seamstress.

      I am confused as well. It gave no real instructions, and I am a novice. I feel very over whelmed.
