Cheryl Powell
Anticipation Dress Pattern

I am loving the dress, simplicity yet with a pinch of spice. The low back and fluttery sleeves sells this beauty.

Verona Woodhouse
Looks great in my olive green stretch velvet

Made my trial dress a size larger (sml rather than X's) as the stretch was 40 percent rather than 50 percent and only 20 percent on length. This gave a perfect size, though my cheap trial fabric was too thin and showed every bump. My thicker stretch velvet in dark olive green is perfect - just got to add sleeve ruffles and hem the dress now. Lovely pattern - really pleased. 5*

Patron clair, facile, robe fantastique

J'ai beaucoup apprécié de coudre cette robe jolie, très flatteuse. Aucune difficulté avec le patron. Un peu moins de dentelle aux manches car je n'en avais plus, très joli rendu !

I bought this pattern to hack the sleeves on another top, but have been distracted, making other Ellie and Mac clothes.
