great pattern! using it for my wedding dress. needs skilled seamstress, however. this pattern is thorough and although it has taken my mother and sister some time to figure it all out, they have done a beautiful job, and i love the fit and style of the dress. they have made it double-layer with a cream colored satin-blend underneath and an overlay of off-white lace. it is lovely, and the pattern fit easily without too many alterations. my mother and sister are both pretty practiced seamstresses, however, so i would not recommend this to anyone as their first project.

Whoops! I’m a size… WHAT?!?!??! The problem with the product is that newbies like myself won’t see the flap that indicates what size you are/were back when this pattern was in vogue (pardon the pun).I’m usually a size 6 or 7 in ready-wear so I bought a “Size A” pattern which covers up to, and including, size 10. I thought that put me in the right-size-ballpark.WRONG!Apparently, what I needed to do was get a size 14. That’s right: 14. Over TWICE the size I usually wear.Were I able to see the back flap and had I gone by the bust, waist, hip measurements printed there, I would have known to purchase a much larger size.Buyer beware!
