http://www.mccallpattern.com/item/M5784.htm?tab=easy_stitch_n_save&page=1

is the pattern I am trying to make the dress. my problem is the back is not as wide as the front and if the fabric is not folded the dress would be way to big for even me? Any one know what i did wrong? Or maybe can point me in the right direction? I am very new to this and really struggling.

The back pattern piece didn't call for it to be cut on the fold??

I've made similar on my own without a pattern, so I'm not familiar with this pattern.  The back should be one piece and wider than the front, because there's elastic in the back to create a gathered look and to hold it up.  The two front pieces shouldn't be as wide and should overlap for the buttons, but appear to also have elastic for the gathered look also.
