    I’ve been trying to download the free pattern for over an hour now and I’m so frustrated.
    I managed to get a toolbar that I didn’t want, and you want me to get a google account which I don’t want. I only wanted the pattern which I still have been unable to get.
    I followed the instructions and entered my e mail. An hour later I have not had the link to carry on.
    I’m very disappointed.

    why isnt the pattern available anymore?

    • Anabelle Delgado

      Sorry Charlotte, I don’t own the pattern. It was posted in the Love sewing magazine and it is no longer available.

    • Gwendolyn

      George and Ginger has a similar pattern on their etsy page. I believe it’s called the Jawbraker dress.

    How can I download the free dress patterns, especially the mermaid dress patterns?

  7. Sierra Wegener

    How can i make this dress for a size 14-16

    • Anabelle Delgado

      HI Sierra!
      To grade up the pattern, just add 1/2″ on the side for each size – you can also make a sloper with your measurements and adjust the pattern to your measurements.

    Hi Anabelle, I would like to ask you, whether dress has a seam allowance. Thank you for your responce.

    Hi Annabelle.
    I was wondering if you have the ruby dress pattern still available as I am wanting to use that as a template for my wedding dress in August this year. If not do you know where I would be able to get it from?

    • Anabelle Delgado

      Thanks for your interest Jess, you should receive the link to the pattern in your first email when you sign up for the sew along.
