    Why does the description call the dress “asymmetrical”? It looks perfectly symmetrical from the line drawing. Just wondering in case I’m signing up for something that I’m not expecting.

      Thanks for pointing that out! Just a little typo and now fixed, sorry for the confusion. The pattern is symmetrical.

    Please add a picture of a make of this pattern-for a newbie seamstress it is extremely hard to envision a dress from just a line drawing.
