    It’s so vintage…pretty!! The neckline is perfect with those cut outs and the rose! I don’t have this pattern but I wonder if I could make something similar with my already excisting patterns.

      Hi, Liliv:
      THe patterns are on sale now until tomorrow.
      I found that altering this pattern is not a easy task – I only added a bit at waist line and it through off other measurements …Gathering for a bow is very precise as well – I would suggest to buy a pattern. Another advice is to pick fabric that shapy but drapes nicely.
      Good luck with the project.

      Thank you so much, Annie! Good luck with your project. One comment before you started: check sizes on the envelope – sometimes I go 2-3 sies smaller. This time, I chose size 14 (my exact size according to the measurements) and it fits perfectly…

      Thank you, Mary Athley! Pattern is not petite but has lines to adjust to petite size. Good luck with the dress…
