For more size info, please see our sizing table. The stretchier your fabric, the more generous the fit will appear. If you're sewing a super soft & stretchy material you may want to err on the smaller size. So for example if you're normally a size 12, choose size S (UK 10-12) for super stretchy materials. On the other hand, if your material is not that stretchy, go for size M (UK 12-14).
Ideally you would be using an overlocker/serger, however you can make this dress using a standard sewing machine. For top tips sewing jersey fabrics, please take a look at this blog post!

Please make sure that you have the print size set to 100% (no scaling) for your pattern to print correctly.
Strip for trims: Sleeveless/Short Sleeves: 15cm length, 75cm width Long Sleeves: 35cm length, 125 cm width Rib knit jersey gives the best result. Alternatively you could also cut the trims out of the same fabric as the dress, or a different jersey fabric, as long as it has good stretch & recovery!
