I have not sewn this dress yet so I don’t feel I can give a comment at this time. Sorry

Diane Hall
Love it

Such a pretty dress. I love that it looks good on everyone.

Beautiful and easy to sew

I sew this pattern using the top a cotton lycra and the skirt of blue jersey. It was super easy an beautiful finished. I feel very confortable on my new dress. I will make more soon.

Quick sew and beautiful!

This is such an easy pattern to sew. My favourite part is it doesn't has a lot of pieces. The instructions are also easy to follow, even for a beginner.

Abba dress

I made a white dress and a neighbour painted the ginger cat on for a fancy dress it looked fab

Rebecca Day
A love hate relationship is born

As with all Ellie & Mac patterns this is amazing value and includes patterns for a straight dolman dress and two piece which joins together with elastic or drawstrings.
Plus you can also use the pattern pieces to make separates. Now on to the hate part for me. I don't think this dress suits me and is quite unflattering on me without added accessories. That being said it's a beautiful dress for so many and I'm sure I'll use the pattern again to make some cute tops and skirts.

Simple dress to make!

This is a great beginner dress and quick sew!

Mary Hull
Not only a dress but a top too.

Love this pattern as it is so versatile . Straight or tie in at the waist . The top part can easily be made into a top . Love the cuffs too.

Elizabeth Johnston
Easy peazy

Give it ago so easy

I Love How Hackable This Is

This pattern is incredibly easy to grade and to hack. I find myself needing to transition to a loungewear and casual wardrobe for use much of the year and this pattern is beautiful as created (and I’m working on a dress) but also not too difficult to redefine as desired.
