Found this pattern and LOVED it! Decided to make a dress for my up and coming graduation so I had a think about colours I would like to wear and went on a material hunt. Found some really cheap fabric at Geoff’s emporium and decided (as the top material was see-through to incorporate a lining for the top only. I made it all one size but next time I would grade the top to a 10 and the bottom to a 12 as I had to do a lot of altering at the end. I’ll probably end up making another one now for graduation, now that I know what I’m supposed to be doing lol. Great pattern + easy to follow instruction + free = LOVE LOVE LOVE

Material Notes

-I’m quite different top and bottom so next time I would grade the pattern but I don’t recommend others doing this unless you sure! dont want you to ruin your dress!
-leave a seam allowance like the pattern says
-you might need to adjust armholes
