    Comfy dress!

    I really love this dress. There were challenging bits but the sewalongs were exceptionally helpful whenever I didn't understand. It is very comfortable, and extremely well finished on the inside. I would say true to size, though if you are cup D or higher to consider the curve option - I didnt have gaping or anything but the bodice was very slightly shorter as a consequence. Will definitely make again :)

    Purchased pattern to make a dress for my daughter to attend a friend’s birthday picnic. Thorough and clear instructions and a breeze to make. Thank you for sharing you’re creativity.

    A good basic pattern that I feel can be used in many different ways

    I really enjoyed the sewing process. The only issue I had was some excess bulk at the point. Not sure if it was how I interface the V and the insert. This was a wearable muslin from some cheap fabric I had at home. The pattern lends itself well to stripe play too

    Great pattern

    Looks a fab pattern either as a top or dress. Just need the time to make it.
