    Hey there! Is there any chance you’d be willing to help me understand the instructions? I’m so lost and I’ve only just begun!

      First download pattern + instructions. Then cut pattern according to your size (every size has it’s own linetype). The big straight rectangular pieces are ruffles, so no need to cut them if you don’t want them. Cut also lining pieces (for collar and sleeves) – that means double as the instructions say (if they say 1x you cut 2 of them). The back pattern piece and collar piece should be placed on a fold. Seam allowance is included and is 1,5cm. Start assembling the back pannel to the back-side pannels ald front pannels to front-side pannels. Sew back and front pieces together. Attach collar (that you lined). Sew sleves according to instructions, and attach to the body piece. Hem the bottom part and viola =) My english is not superb, so if i didn’t explain things well feel free to ask again.

      It is hard to see how great the pattern is under all those ruffles in the pattern picture… Fabric is more than 30 years old and looks like new. i like it very much!
      thanks for the nice comment =)
