  1. Susan

    I think itch to stitch is a little bit long waisted for me. Easy fix. I’m going to make another one and will adjust.

  2. Pamela

    I purchased this particular pattern because I needed a dress for an upcoming charity gala event, and didnt want to wear a long dress~ This is absolutely perfect for this event as well as many other things going on ( fall wedding/ symphony tickets etc) This is to be my LBD, only I am sewing this up in a midnight navy which is a better color for me. As always, I can turn to Itch to Stitch to come through with exactly what I want. Lovely lovely, lovely,,, and classic classic classic! ( did I mention beautifully drafted!??)
    I think the perfect shoes will be more difficult to find than the dress!

How to choose your size

  1. Determine if you should use the regular bust front pieces or the full-bust front pieces—subtract the circumference of your over bust from the circumference of the fullest part of your bust. If the rounded difference is 3″ (7.5 cm) or less, use regular bust; if it is more than 3" (7.5 cm), use full bust.

  2. Compare your bust circumference (fullest part) to the “Body Measurements” table. Using the corresponding row for your bust (regular bust or full bust), choose the size that best fits your bust. If you are between sizes, choose the smaller size if you like your garment more fitted; otherwise, choose the bigger size.

  3. Compare your waist circumference (narrowest part) to the “Body Measurements” table. Choose the size that best fits your waist. If you are between sizes, choose the smaller size if you like your garment more fitted; otherwise, choose the bigger size.

  4. Compare your hip circumference (widest part) to the “Body Measurements” table. Choose the size that fits your hip best. If you are between sizes, choose the smaller size if you like your garment more fitted; otherwise, choose the bigger size.

  5. It’s OK to use different sizes for the bust, waist and hip. The instructions for blending sizes are included in the pattern.

  6. If you are taller or shorter than 5’6” (168 cm), you should consider lengthening or shortening the garment. The instructions for lengthening or shortening are included in the pattern.
