The skirt is gathered to the bodice, has inseam pockets and a deep hemline.

PRINTING YOUR PDF PATTERN
After downloading the files to your computer, you can print out the pattern using your home printer. The pattern pages are formatted to fit US standard page size (8.5” x 11”) as well as A4 page size (8.26” x 11.69”). Be sure the printer settings are set to “actual size” and only print the first page that includes the test square before printing the rest of the pattern. Measure the test square with a ruler to be sure the pattern pages will print accurately. If the measurements are correct, go ahead and print the entire pattern. Assemble the printed pattern by cutting out the pattern pieces and matching them together by the letters and numbers that are marked on each pattern (“1A” to “1A”, “1B” to “1B” etc.) and then taping them together.

This pattern is so fun!! I did a practice shirt with some lawn before I make my dress. 🥰 Update: I’ve made a bunch of these dresses. I get complements all of the time. I love to make them a little smaller than my size, and in a cotton lawn. 👌
Made the sleeveless dress first, I loved it so much I made another one straight after! I went for the smallest size as I knew the dress is quite oversized, it fits me perfectly as a UK size 6. I found the pattern very straightforward. I think I'll be making it with sleeves next :).
Great pattern. Made the tank and the top so far. These are among my first two sewing projects. Novice garment maker. Had to YouTube some techniques but mission accomplished!
First time I've ever used a PDF pattern. A lot of work to start with but so worth it because I can re-print it for any other size whenever I want. Putting it all together was time-consuming but straightforward, like an easy jigsaw! Also, traditional patterns use that very thin paper, whereas I printed on normal white A4 printer paper so it was much easier to pin to the fabric without tearing, and held its position. Very easy instructions to follow. I used YouTube for the interfacing because I'd never done that before, but otherwise super fun and easy pattern.
