This pattern has been drafted for a height of 5’7 and ends below the knee.
The bodice has two cup size options - a B cup and a C/D cup The panels around the bust are subtly shaped up top and flare down to a loose, A-line skirt. The waist is intentionally unfitted.
I recommend making a toile first to work out any fitting alterations you may need, before cutting into your chosen fabric.
