Very good pattern with one caveat

A review of Marsha Style Grace Dress

Reviewed by Bri on 23rd June, 2023

This is a lovely pattern and it’s pretty fun to sew. I do want to point out that the finished garment measurements for the bust only offer about an inch of positive ease. I’m a 34 inch bust (b-cup), so I graded between sizes 4 & 6, sewed at the appropriate seam allowance, and the bodice came out much too tight. I unpicked my side seams, stitched at about a 1/6” seam allowance, and managed to make it work. But according to my measurements, I should have fit perfectly between the 4 & 6.

I typically have the opposite problem with sundresses (usually wind up with more positive ease than I want), so I thought I’d note this here for anyone who happens upon the pattern!
