    What an easy and quick sew to pack such a visual punch! It’s concise directions are a breeze to get through, and the design itself is so unique! I LOVE and can’t wait to see and sew future patterns!

    great pictures to show every step. Comes together real nice. Overall a beautiful dress when finished. Even my teen daughter that doesn’t normally wear dresses wants her own after seeing what I made

    Confession: I bought this with no intention of actually sewing it when I saw the version I liked was pieced together. But I was so in love with it I commited to at least trying! It was much easier than I thought it was going to be! Very detailed instructions! I’ve already sewed one and cut up another ready to be sewn for a holiday several months away! It really is such an eye catching dress!!
    My daughter loves it because it’s so “twirly”.

    This was the first pattern I have purchased from this company. I was very pleased. I am currently fed up with 90% of patterns, either I hate the fit, or the instructions don’t make any sense; but this was a really good pattern. My daughter who is really picky loves it. I wish I had bought more then one pattern when they were on sale.

    I have not made the dress yet but plan to make two as Easter dresses. I have read through the pattern and it has good directions and seems a simple yet adorable dress.
