    I just checked out your blog and I love all of your projects! I can’t wait to try your skirt tutorial and great idea turning the lace dress into a shirt. It looks fantastic with the skirt!

      It does not have seam allowance included, so cut out an extra cm around the outside of the pattern.

      The darts just need cutting out (as shown on the pattern pieces) and then sewn together, nothing too fancy.

      Hope that makes sense, ask again if you need any more help.
