I found a lovely bird silloette pattern for £3 pm which is great since this pattern does go away with at least 4mtrs of fabric.
If you want to make this dress I strongly recommend making up a mock up first for the front panel and back piece (you dont need to do the back skirt panel) to get a better fit otherwise you’ll end up with a very baggy unflattering bodice. I’m a size 12 uk and I used the size 8 for the neck/arms and bust and graded it to a size 12 for the waist…it free on the hips so I just stuck with the 12.
