    Made up the dress, but did not care for the style on me. Easy pattern but was not flattering for me.

    Very easy pattern to follow and makes up beautifully. Really pleased with the end result in the dress. I’m very keen to make the tunic now. Thank you Style Arc.

    This dress is so stinking cute made up!

    My dress is made of flannel. I altered the pattern (1) by dropping the pockets an extra 1.5” and (2) by adding to the length. (At 6’ tall and middle aged, a 39” dress is so short it is more of a tunic on me than a dress.)

    I used size 30 pattern and it is pretty roomy, so I could have gone down a size or two and it would still fit very nicely.

    Overall a great pattern and the sizing was perfect. So good for competent beginners.
    BUT the pockets seemed impossibly complicated so I simplified them. And the instructions were incomplete. There were no instructions about the facing and reinforcing around the neckline. Fortunately it was easy to work out what I should be doing.

    I love style arc patterns. Download was easier than I thought it would be and putting it together was a puzzle at first but got it accomplised! I need to hem my dress but I will say there will be more Mary dresses in the future but please give more detailed instructions. This was a pretty easy pattern so I was able to sew it on my own.

    This a terrific pattern that I probably would not have made if I hadn’t seen it on Lara Thornberry’s always inspiring blog. I made it in a fine cotton batik that had lingered in my stash for over 30 years & did French seams throughout. Happy to have discovered Style Arc with your great fit, style & helpful staff when I had an inquiry.

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.
