Swinging the dress

I started using my stash. Or more the fabrics I was buying all the time...
The jersey dress itself:








The pattern tutorial:



Important is to consider in the measurement that the jersey is stretching. You should cut it in a way that you apply your measures to a stretched jersey, otherwise it will get too wide. The skirt is made of 4 pieces because of the fabric - I wanted to make the stripes slightly tilted. The pattern is of a basic circular skirt, it can be done with 2 pieces or even just 1 piece.

All in all very easy and comfy dress - I think I will make a black one if I find the right jersey for it!

Great dress!! So wanting to make one. Is the pattern to be used with my own measurements? Is it easy to do? I'm a newbie so have only been using printable patterns. Do you have any tips on making this dress?
Thanks
