I have been searching for a long time for a dress like that. only in adult sizes.

Have found one similar in two tones colour from the sixties, but the page the pattern was on is no longer available.

Please make an adult sized dress like this! Please, pretty please.

I have loved this dress since I purchase the magazine months ago...I'm making it two sizes bigger because I need size 10. I have a question on the instructions (All sizes) Rnd 4(4,4,5,5). The instructions for the first parentheses should be made on the first cd or the first ch-sp. As I study the picture it looks that it should be on the ch-sp. Thank you Gladys
