Adjectives after c'est are masculine

Yet the examples state: "C'est une jolie robe," and "C'est une bonne nageuse." Why is the feminine used here?

Bonjour Tamani, When c'est is followed only by an adjective, it's masculine: C'est joli, C'est bon, C'est intéressant. When it's followed by a noun and adjective, as in your examples, the adjective follows the normal rules of agreement.

Thanks to your question Tamani, I've now updated the related lesson to remove any ambiguity :) Merci et à bientôt !

Hi Aurèlie, what did you change in the lesson because after reading it several times I still had the same question as Tamani, although your response did answer my question. Thanks
