  1. Is there a way I can print this pattern out without printing everything on this page?

    Thank you


  2. I’m totally confused as to how this dress is supposed to put this dress together. I need a picture for the step of leaving the 10 for wholes.

  3. You do not show how to make the sleeves for this dress. This is the 1st time I’ve made any clothing. Can you please send me the sleeve instructions.

    1. Hello Claudia! Thanks for inquiry and sorry for delayed reply. I will do my best to answer your questions clearly. The dress is 2 rectangles sewn together, so there is no pattern for the sleeves. However, here is a break down of how to sew together:

      1. From the top edge, you will measure 10 inches down. This will be the holes for your arms (do not sew shut). Sew from 10 inch mark to the bottom edge of dress.

      2. Across the top, you will measure & sew 7 inches from each edge, (this will be the shoulders/sleeves), the remaining opening will be the neck hole.

      If you have any further questions, please reach out.
