Dress pattern

Angela,
Here are the basic shapes of the pattern and how I altered it(after shaving an inch off size 12) I am a dress size 4/6



I got the pattern at Wal-Mart for $2.94, New Look #6094














I also kept the skirt longer and hemmed it to just hit my knee. If I were to do it again I would cut the size 10 pattern and probably still do the alterations just not as heavy. I kept trying it on and pinning it to my needs. Ironing and trying on, life savers! Also try a longer, rather than tight stitch when first putting it together. I used a small tight stitch an when I realized it was ginormous I had to cut the pieces a part rather than being able to quickly unstitch it.

Hope this helps.

Thank you SO much for this. I really appreciate you taking the time to give all the details

We can get New Look patterns quite easily here in the UK and I shall check that one out next week when I am on holiday.

You have made such a good job of it!
