What a stunning dress, in perfect condition. Many thanks

Excellent communication from shop regarding the issues below and on this basis I'm happy to revise my feedback. to 5*, and the pattern is fine :-) A couple of issues - firstly the pattern is described as cut and complete, however it has been cut for view 2 and the skirt extension pieces to make view 1 are missing, so it's not complete. Secondly, it was sent by signed for post which meant I had to go to the Post Office to collect it. I really don't think signed for post is necessary for a £6 purchase! Other than that, I'm happy with the pattern. :-)

CLOTHING: HOW WE MEASURE AND FITTING ADVICE
The measurements given are the garment's size, not your body size. A garment needs to be bigger than you are, so allow at least an inch or two for ease of movement in addition your body measurements, more for coats or loose fitting garments. To be sure of a good fit, measure a similar garment that fits you well and compare. Feel free to ask us for advice.
Measurements are taken with the garment laid flat, and kept 'relaxed' not stretched, doubling where appropriate.
Bust or Chest: underarm to underarm, doubled
Waist: across natural waist/narrowest point, doubled
Hips: measured side to side 8" below waist, doubled
Shoulders: from shoulder seam to opposite shoulder seam, at the top
Sleeve length: from shoulder seam to cuff,
Raglan sleeve length: from back of neck to cuff.
Sleeve inseam: from underarm to cuff
Bodice length: from highest point of garment (eg back of neck, top of shoulder, top of strapless bodice), excluding any collar, to waist.
Overall length: from highest point of garment (eg back of neck, top of shoulder, top of strapless bodice, top of waist), excluding any collar, to lowest point of hem. Men's jackets are always measured from back of neck, below collar, to hem.
Clothes: Larger sizes may be pinned back on the mannequin to show the shape. Full skirts may be shown over a full petticoat. Unless otherwise stated jewellery, belts and other accessories are not included.
Unless otherwise stated garments will not be dry-cleaned, but will be either hand-laundered or steam-cleaned to freshen if necessary.
We aim for accurate colours, but be aware that colours show differently on different monitors.
We operate from a smoke-free home. We do have a cat so can't guarantee cat hair free, though we don't allow him near the stock! Some items may have traces of scent or pet hair from their previous owners, though anything significant will be pointed out.
Please ask if you have any questions.
