    Fun sew, great fit

    Challenging sew for me but found instructions in booklet and online very helpful. I love the result.

    Paisley Polka Dot Matilda

    The dress is flattering with many options to customize. I made size 8, and added .25 inch on side seams for both bodice and skirt. Instructions are very clear and sew along is very helpful. Instead of buttons, I liked better concealed closure look so I used sew in snaps. Next time I will adjust pattern so right placket will have inside strip so the button holes will be invisible from the outside. My next Matilda will be solid, linen in raspberry.

    Great Pattern

    Great pattern and very cute finished result, lots of pieces which seems overwhelming but the instructions are very clear and step by step it came together. Would recommend.

    Matilda Pattern - Really like the printed pattern

    I ordered the printed pattern in the smaller size, even though I need the larger size and also ordered the PDF. I have not used either yet, but I found the instructions for both printed and PDF clear and easy to understand. I would have preferred the option to get the larger size grouping as a printed pattern. I am happy I found your patterns, and liked this one very much. I am not sure the rest of the current selection of patterns would get me to buy another pattern. I will continue to check in for new styles. I think there is a real market for large size patterns, and for styles that are more than just simple shapes. I think you could continue to build on the quality you’ve already established with a few new styles. Hope this feedback helps.
