The pattern is a lot of work first to put it together, since a lot of pieces were straight cut I just measured and cut those lengths and then put the markings on the tissue paper for all of the vinyl pieces. It took a long time to make this but finally when finished I love it. Perhaps if each section was done separate then put together may be easier, instead of sewing on a 54” piece. I’ll try this way next one I make.
This pattern was so easy to sew. Directions were clear. I made it in a patterned denim and it turned out so cute. Will definitely be making this dress again.
Estupendo, muy bien explicado.
Great. This dress was the closest I could find to one a customer had requested be made from denim. I was easily able to make a few adjustments, and the dress turned out so cute. Top stitching added such a cute detail.
A Pleasure to sew The instructions are great a complete beginner can easily understand the photo's are a big help Thanks
