Question: are the Laurel dress and blouse pattern the same?
Answer: the two are identical in the top, but the dress gets wider starting with the waist.
I tried to look up this information online but could not find it. I ended up printing all of the back section to verify and the bottom three rows of the front section.
I then made the dress and promptly proceeded to removing the extra ease. I took it in 1cm on each side, starting at the waist.
