Wow this pattern was really difficult for some reason, I had to redo the neckline, sleeves, darts AND hem. I Started with a size 14 which according to the pattern should have been a perfect fit but it came out huge and I ended up having to trim 1.5 inches off the sides, take the darts in etc. Basically it was a size too big and ended up a bit of a mess. Total nightmare. But I WILL not be beaten by a dress pattern! I'll be back to try this again.
