    Love this capsule set!!

    So far I have made a square neck flutter sleeve top and the skirt in a cotton linen. The pattern was really easy to work with and cut out. I made size 12. I finished the skirt in 1 day and then the top the next day. I'll definitely be using this pattern again and again. It's very versatile. Also great set of instructions.

    Lovely top

    This pattern goes together so well. And the tutorials in the sewalong are very helpful. I opted to eliminate the bust dart, shorten the sleeves, and use a bias facing at the neck, along with making a couple of minor fit adjustments. I love the result. I plan to make another top with the flutter sleeves, and at least one dress and skirt. I really like the 5/8” seam allowances, too — they’re essential for French and flat-felled seams.

    Protea blouse

    I made the square neckline blouse and I love it! I didn't have to make any extra fit adjustments and it's a very fun and easy to sew. I was so surprised this square neckline was so easy to fit. I'm currently deciding on fabric to make both dress versions!

    Fun and easy sew

    I was surprised by how easy this pattern is, when the dress looks like so much work. For my first piece I was able to hack the pattern into a slight drop waisted midi dress and it turned out beautifully. I plan to make another one in white, and one with drawstring waist in black - just because this pattern is so versatile for dresses of all occasions.
