Feminine and flirty, Adelaide’s fluttery profile is perfect to wear to a bridal shower, happy hour, or just for a stroll in the downtown shopping district. The wide, raw-edged bias-cut flounces are stitched across the front to create the light and airy silhouette—it’s like wearing a layer cake. The gal who wears this tank values practicality with her flair: The front of the neckline arcs tastefully above the playful ruffles; the back dips slightly lower, but not so much as to require any special undergarments.

    There are no instructions as three people have stated. How can anyone have a fighting chance with no instructions?

    I’m assuming that the reason for the lack of instructions adds to the challenge of this competition, but it would be nice to know if this pattern is drafted for wovens or knits. I’m leaning towards knits. Hmmm…

    I don’t see directions for sewing, or instructions for sizing, either. I found the women’s measurement chart for number sizes, but nothing to help with S, M, L, XL, or XXL sizing.

    Are there instructions for this pattern? The PDF download only includes the pattern.
