The pattern seamed to be simple.Since I used an elastic fabric I could just drop the zipper. Although the fabric is elastic I cut the bottom part on the bias (as requested in the instructions). This makes walking in this dress more comfortable. I used the smallest size but had to take the side seams in about 1.5 inch per side and shorten the upper part 5 inch…but I have to admit that I’m a skinny dwarf. My dress didn’t have the exposed back issue because I positioned the ends of the back parts closer to the side seams. Nevertheless I installed a little hook and eye to secure the position.
