A new favorite

It ended up being a little short for a1930s dress as it hit right above the knee, but that was easily fixed. I love the pattern. It's so well written and easy to follow. Definitely a new favorite!

Lovely dress

I haven't used it myself, but I bought it for my 11 year old daughter to make a dress for her cousin. She is a fairly accomplished seamstress, thanks to all the Pixie Fair patterns I've accumulated over the years, and she found it fairly easy, though she needed a little help from me. Thank you for the beautiful patterns!

Very sweet dress

A well written pattern, clear and concise, produced a very nice dress. A good addition to my collection of 1930s patterns for Kit and Ruthie. The pattern is a snug fit for a BeForever Kit, so bear in mind.

I love this pattern! It was the perfect pattern to use for my version of Skipper's "All Spruced Up" from 1967. Great fit. Love the pleat in the back. Contrast topstitching and middy braid were added to make it look like Skipper's.
