This is such a versatile pattern. You can use woven or stretch fabric, top or dress. I’ve made two dresses now, both with ponte roma, stretch fabric.

Its an oversized fit so although my measurements put me a fraction over the size 8, I went for that size. The instructions are great and the pattern, if you buy PDF, is layered so you can just select your size (or sizes if you want to blend between sizes). I made no alterations to the pattern other than shortening it. Its designed, I believe, for someone who is 5ft 8. I am shorter than this and I find that oversized lose fitting dresses look better on me. I made the dress shorter after trying it on and deciding how much I wanted to take off, raher than shortening the pattern piece. The back in longer than the front by design but I took less off the back than the front to make the difference in length between the front and back less dramatic.

Its a quick make with few pattern pieces and takes just 1.5m for the dress. I am sure I will make more!
