Simple and Satisfying

I'm a major beginner and my first one came together quickly and easily. I've made several more versions since and loved them all!

Love the idea of mix and matching fabrics

Looking forward to making this up. Love the idea of colour blocking for this style . I think I will be mix and matching linens from my stash!

PDF pattern

I would gladly have pd for a full size pattern by the time I tape together all the pieces. Or even just inches, since most are just rectangles.
Please consider!!!

Pattern and instructions are so well laid out and easy to follow. I will be making it again but in a smaller size. I did make the neckline smaller and added to the length. Definitely worth buying, will be lovely as the dress too.
