Pattern was easy to follow with clear directions and pictures. Came out cute!
Overall, the experience was great, I had ah few hiccups with the placket, where one side hadta be made ah little longer in order for the placket to lay flush against the shirt itself, bt overall ah great pattern, with ah lot of details & possibilities. Thanks
Love the look of this dress. I color blocked it by making the top of the dress a different color than the bottom. (I used the shirt top and skirt bottom). I have used dozens of Pixie's patterns, but this was the most challenging. I had to go to YOU TUBE for help with the placket--that worked! Right now I'm working on the collar. YIKES! Can't tell the top from the bottom of the collar piece--is it long enough? I've spent hours on this dress redoing and redoing! I WILL get it right eventually! (I hope)! I love a challenge! Woo-hoo!
