The link for the blog post with the instructions for this dress (blog.fabrics-store.com/2016/10/31/whimsical-linen-bow-dress-tutorial/) is broken. Where can I find the instructions, please? Thank you.

Hi! Unfortunately the tutorial for this pattern had to be removed from the blog due to errors. We have not made a new tutorial for it yet. We will send out an email when we can get a new tutorial ready for this pattern. In the meantime - I will turn off this pattern so it is not confusing.

Without whimsical bow?

I really like the simplicity of this design but wondered if it can be made without the bow? Would I need to alter the pattern at all?

Fabulous!

Simple, elegant dress. The cinching at the waist creates a flattering silhouette. Easy to make with very satisfying results. Many thanks for this beautiful, free pattern.

Since I live in Thailand and don't have access to your wonderful linen, I made up the Whimsical Bow dress in a soft cotton I had bought in India. I made 2 small changes: no zipper in the back, instead a button, and I made the front and back the same length. The instructions are easy to follow, except the link in the tutorial to an armhole facing tutorial leads to a 404. Thanks again!
