  4. beautiful dress & jacket Dot! doyou always use petite patterns? I shy away from them because retail petite doesn't fit me right except the skirts but have thought of trying them since I have to hack up all my patterns lol! & you made a dress from a blouse pattern how clever is that!, I am going to try to apply what Ive learned here today lol!

    1. Thanks Helen! When purchasing patterns I've never thought of checking for petites as I have to lengthen most of them. Most patterns need the bodice adjustment. I always have to check for sleeve width. I do have a dress pattern that I'd like to make into a top. As you can tell, I've gotten brave enough to purchase thrift store patterns that are not in my size and do the adjustments. Have fun!
