Much to love but beware

In fairness, I used this pattern to create what has become one of my favorite dresses. However, in the first iteration, the armholes and sleeves were too tight and the sleeve cap sat too high up on my shoulders. I redrafted the top to have more material in the arm hole and widened the arms. Luckily, I had enough material to redo the top. With these adjustments, the pattern is great. The directions are easy to follow and, if you follow the diagram, the printed pieces are easy to compile.

You will be captivating

I made this dress for my daughter, she loves it. She said it fit like a glove. I plan to make more for her and it’s an easy sew.

Fab pattern, as per usual!

I love that you get a top and a dress, both in one pattern. The top is very versatile, I wear mine a lot and will be making more. Cross over neckline adds interest. The dress is a lovely pencil skirt style. The pattern is very clear and explains how to adjust for height/torso length (side waist). Thank you for another great pattern and amazing value!!
