Which size will fit me?
The pattern comes with all sizes from XXS-XXL. Since the dress is loose around the waist and hips, your bust measurement is the most important. See more about finding the right size here.
What fabric should I use?
The pattern is made primarily for woven fabrics, but can also be sewn in stretch. Stretch is more difficult to sew in than woven fabric. Avoid choosing a fabric that is too thick, in order for the dress to drape nicely.
If you are in doubt about the fabric, poplin, crepe, woven viscose, seersucker or cotton satin all work well for this dress.
