Additional Notes

Superb pattern.

Great beginner knit pattern. The stability of the knit is important in keeping the shape of this dress. Instructions are thorough and the woven facing gives a great finish.

As with all True Bias patterns, this was easy to follow and sew up!

I didn't get confused at any steps and the instructions are written out very well! Definitely making this again in the future. Love this dress!

Great pattern so many options. Easy to follow and a pretty quick sew.

Love this pattern! Satisfying, quick sew

A very well designed dress.

The Lodo dress is easy to sew and easy to wear! I love the structure that the woven facings give the knit dress. It's super comfortable and stylish.
