    This is a very stylish dress. The drafting is wonderful – the sleeves slot in so perfectly. I made a size 12 without the zip as I wanted a slightly more relaxed fit as I will be wearing this on Xmas day. I used the instructions for the inseam pockets from the Montana Dress. These give a very good finish to the pocket and the seam. I used a washed linen from Tesutti’s and underlined with a cotton lawn. Next version will be a size 10 with zip in silk for my MOB dress.

    Just cut out “Gertrude”. Concerned I might have cut it out tooo small. Reading reviews, maybe I’ll be fine. Love the design can’t wait to see the end result. Will keep you posted

    I love the design and it comes together beautifully, but the sizing is on the larger side, haad to reduce significantly, and now regret not buying multi-size, since I’m more than one size off.

    I have now made this dress in 3 different versions. The first was to play around with the fitting on the top, just needed reducing a little and I elongated the back pleats slightly. I am very pleased with the result.

    Made this up in plain 100% linen which emphasised the shaping, great to dress up or down. I usually cut a size larger to fit but wish I hadn’t for this, had to take in quite a bit as it works up quite large. I’ll be making up more Style Arc patterns!

    Like the look of dress. Really easy to put together but huge sizing for me. Had to take in at the back seam a couple of inches and don’t need a zipper which is good because the pale green sage linen I bought didn’t have matching zipper–couldn’t find anything close!! I like but just a little frumpy from the back.

    This pattern was bought as part of a birthday gift for my daughter. I had sent the email announcing its release to her as I liked it very much but I am no longer slim and it would not have suited me. She liked the design hence the purchase. She has a demanding job, husband and two kids to care for but has cut out the dress and is hoping to finish sewing it this week end. She is still liking it.

How Do I Know What Size I Am?

Choosing your pattern size is the most important step and we will help you determine this with these easy to follow steps.

  1. When taking your measurements ensure that you take them against your skin and not over clothing. One can wear a comfortable bra and knickers whilst measuring, as this will provide you with the most accurate measurements.
  2. Tape measure has to sit firmly around the points you are measuring. But be careful not to pull it too tight, as this will give you the incorrect size.
  3. When measuring circumferences (B, C, D, E) it is important to note that the tape measure must remain parallel to the floor. It is sometimes best to take the measurements in front of a mirror; this will help you see the angle of the tape measure.
  4. You will only require the basic body measurements to determine your pattern size which is indicated on our mannequin below:
A. Shoulder Breadth

Place the tape at the edge of the shoulder. Measure along the top of the shoulder blade/across the highest point of the shoulders to the other edge, following the natural slope and allow an extra finger for ease of any movement.

B. Upper Arm Girth

This point is taken as a circumference at your widest point of your upper arm.

C. Bust

This point is taken as a circumference parallel to the floor at the fullest part of your chest.

D. Waist

This point is taken as a circumference and taken at the smallest part of your waist.

E. Hip

This point is taken as a circumference parallel to the floor at the widest part of your hips.
