    great dress, coloures really work well together and it fits you perfectly. do you mind saying your size i’m an english 24 and wonder if they do it my size it .looks like it would flatter the more ample girl.

      Hiya, not at all in english shops I’m anywhere from an 18 to a 22. For the pattern I used a 16 at the shoulders, a 2in full bust adjustment, then an 18 +4in for the skirt.
