When I try to download the pattern, it takes me to a page in Rusdian, which, of course I cannot understand. Can’t find the link to download then.
That is a marvelous dress design! Thank you for reading and commenting on the interview from my blog! Hope you will follow me – I have some other great interviews planned for upcoming posts. Now I’m following you too!
I’m having the same problem when downloading the pattern. I love this dress and I’m a beginner sewer so please if you have a version in English it would greatly be appreciated!!! Thank you!!!!
There should be something at the top of your screen possibly a symbol that when you open it it will ask you if you want to have it translated. Then i believe an app will come up with something you can install and once you bring up something again that needs translated it will ask you automatically if you want it translated.
This is the direct link to the pattern: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B5RunRPNXLq-Q1VubFN5bThUQzQ/view?usp=sharing
On any page in a foreign language right click on the page and click Translate English – The translation is not always accurate, but it helps.
That doesn’t work because it’s a .pdf.
Has anyone made this dress yet? It is exactly what I’m looking for but I need to know if it is possible to make.
Hi, seams allowance are they included or should i added it to the sewing pattern?
If they are include, how long they are?
No seam allowance are included in the pattern! please share pictures if you sew this dress. It’s been very popular.
The download Took me to a Russian pattern, can I please get it in English?
The direct link to the pattern is on this post. Also, if you right-click on your desktop you can select Translate English to read the original page in English.
Translating is not working with me!? I can choose to translate, but nothing happens.
Another question: is this really only big sizes (44-50)? I would like to make a 40 and a 36… How do I begin with that?
Thanks for the help!
Another option is to copy and paste the text and use google translate.
For a smaller size, you can adjust the measurement maintaining the shape of the pattern.
I agree with everyone we need it in english!!!!!!!!!!!!! Also where is the step by step directions on construction!!!!!!!!!
What a beautiful dress; I downloaded the free pattern but need a tutorial. Is there anybodye with a good hart who could translate into English or Nederlands ? Even my husband tried to find the translation but found nothing.
But many thanks for this pattern even I’m not able to make it !
Greets from Belgium,
Where are the sewing instructions? Maybe this is not for beginners.
Please help with instructions / tutorial for the v neck dress?
Thanks for your comment.
Ok, I’m going to work in a tutorial. I’ll let you know. 🙂
Отличная модель, жаль что нет шаблона выкройки на 58 размер
Instructions and translated to English would help. Translation does not work as the file is a PDF.
This is not a plus size pattern. Russian sizes and EU sizes aren’t the same. Russian size 48 is EU 40, UK 12 or US 10.
I would like to get the pattern or buy the dress of the white with black polka dots. How do I get the pattern?
Here is the direct link to the pattern: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B5RunRPNXLq-Q1VubFN5bThUQzQ/view

Thank you for sending the pattern to me.
I wanted the pattern for the polka dot dress that has sleeves and crosses in the front.

How do you determine how much fabric would i need. What fabric did you use to make the formal gown and how much of each. Sleeveless.
