I am wearing an X-tremely modified, to the point of no return, night dress made from Tina Givens Lola Dress pattern.

Okay, so I made it out of fabric I didn't like, sort of like a test drive for a night gown, cuz you know how it can go for TG patterns... And right of the bat, the amount of fabric required is off. Like saying 54" wide is needed when only 45" or less is fine. Not to mention, you're instructed (and shown in the diagram) to cut 2 front pattern pieces on the fold. That's after you've already cut 1 back pattern piece (which is identical to the front) on the fold. Yeah, it was easy to spot that error.
|~ what a sweetie pie, mwaaa ~|
Then just looking at the pattern piece laying on the fabric, I can see there is no way the arm hole can be big enough. The pattern piece is too wide at the bodice but way too narrow at the arm hole/ sleeve area. I make adjustments and add longer, wider sleeves. I also add side seam pockets. Really?
