This vintage-inspired design has two bodices, three skirts, six sleeve styles, and two collars, giving you 72 dress designs in one package. The “Choose Your Own Adventure” style of instructions lets you decide how you’ll finish your dress—neckline facing, all-in-one facing, partial lining, or full lining. Gertie will concentrate on the bodice fit of the pattern. Your pattern is included compliments of Linda McCarthy Studio.
• Personalized sewing and fitting instruction
