A pattern with a ton of variations: fitted bodice, full skirt, fitted skirt, collar, bias edges, bias ties, belt, sleeves, no sleeves. Whew! In the end I made a mash up of version A and B. I didn’t have any problems with the instructions, but the darts were a bit too high up for me. I should have lowered them. There is an inside tie as well a hook & eye on the outside so even with gusty winds, you are safe in this dress. However if you choose to bend or lean forward, beware, because it gapes. Make sure to add some snaps or else the world will get a view!
