The Gardenia Dress is my new favorite pattern! The pattern pieces go together beautifully, and the end result is a pretty, comfortable dress. My first attempt was supposed to be a muslin, but I finished all the seams as I went along, just in case I really liked it. Well, I do! I added 6" to the length (I'm 5'9 and like long dresses). My next stab at it will close up the neckline just a tad, as I found that to be slightly too wide, but the rest of the dress is perfect. I'm also going to try color-blocking--I think that might add an interesting touch to it. Thank you, Sarah, for a really great, versatile pattern!!! Later: So here's my color-blocked version out of Ponte knit. Soooo very pleased with it.

Not sure if I did something wrong, but this turned out a lot larger than I expected. I am a NZ size 8 so I cut out XS. I set the printer to 1:1 so I think it printed true to size. Also, there were some pieces that would have fit quite easily on to 1 piece of A4 paper with one in 3 pieces that had to be taped together. Not a problem, just time consuming and makes me think twice about downloading another pattern. Instructions were great, and it did come together really nicely - just larger than I would wear.

Response from sarah

Oh no! Sorry to hear about the results of your Gardenia Dress. Unfortunately, it sounds to me that you may have printed your dress from "Preview" which most computers will open the files in as the default program. All of my designs require Adobe Reader to open and print the pattern and tutorial from, and the printer settings need to be set to "Actual Size" not 1:1. This instruction can be found on Page 2 of the tutorial. If you ever question the print size of your pattern tiles, there is a 1"x1" grid which you can use a reference throughout the entire pattern print out. If you're printing in any other program other than Adobe, the pattern grid will give you an additional .25" for every inch, approximately. The end product will get you a garment that comes out way oversized.
