Great pattern, easy to make, very versatile!

Love it... use it all the time!

I love this dress. I made it out of a rayon from my stash. It runs true to size. I made the 12, but the 10 would have been better according to the measurements. It is short-waisted, so I lengthened the bodice 2 inches. For me it is the loose-fitting slouchy style I was looking for.

I made a muslin of the largest size (20) and it is flattering and comfortable. I have a large bust and thought I would have to do an FBA but it looks great without alterations! I found the neckline binding instructions confusing and just ignored them and made a binding neckline the way I know how. I'm really excited about making it again!

Pattern is super easy to follow and modify. Great for a beginner!

I picked up the printed pattern from a fabric shop while on vacation so luckily I did not have to assemble it. However, I did trace it and grade between sizes which was easy. I had some issues following the instructions for the neckband, but that is very likely user error!

I'm really happy with this dress! Quick to make and comfy to wear!

I couldn't find any reference to the finished length of the garment, which would have been useful. Otherwise fairly straightforward.

I 'm a huge fan of this pattern. It was a super quick make and the pockets are drafted like a dream. I'd say the sizing runs a bit large, but that's just my taste. I ended up cutting a size smaller than I normally would to make the slouchy, casual nature of the dress a bit more fitted (which suits my frame better)

This was a super-quick and easy sew. I may need to size down a little next time, but that's my personal preference. I made a few adjustments (I fall between sizes), but the pattern was really straight-forward. Piecing, cutting the pattern, cutting the garment, and sewing everything start-to-finish only took a few hours, and I'm fairly slow with making adjustments and sewing. I would definitely recommend this to anyone wanting a top with stylish ease. I used the scooped neckline and sloped hem for the top. I can't wait to make a dress version!

I'm planning a dress next with the scooped neckline and sloped hem in a black linen for summer.
