Hello, Sometimes printing from a computer, rather than a mobile device within the Adobe App, will do the trick. On some devices the App can interfere with printing.

Lovely

I sewed this dress over the weekend (could have been one day - but I didn't have a zipper or buttons) and it came together so easily. I did a mockup first of the top and had to make some adjustments to the bust, but otherwise it was fantastic! I look forward to trying out some other patterns now.

Hi! I just sent you an email with the pattern pieces. The pattern pieces are included as an attached file to the main PDF you are opening. You would open the main PDF with Adobe. In the Adobe menu select View - Show/Hide - Navigation Panes - Attachments. Adobe pops open a side panel with the attached pattern pieces file :)

Instead of linen I used a chambray and it worked out very well.

I did a FBA using the tutorial on your website. It worked well. I added sleeves to make the dress British weather friendly. Also used a shirt collar instead to avoid raw edges on facing. Thank you for this free pattern.
