The pattern is designed for knit fabrics only in the bodice but a knit or woven fabric may be used for the skirt. The full photo tutorial makes it easy to sew. This is an intermediate level pattern. Included in the pattern is a "Sew Quick" guide with very basic instructions for experienced seamstresses. The pattern is saved in layers which allows the user to print only the size they need when opened in Adobe Reader.  Each size has the neckband, cowl and short sleeve cuff measurements right on the pattern pieces, which helps make it easy to store for using time and time again. Additionally, pattern pieces for these are provided on the pattern tiling.
