This is a great basic dress, with a nicely lined bodice and added interest from princess seams, your choice of belts, and a variety of skirt options. There also is the very fun pattern hack on the PF website that shows off striped fabric perfectly. The instructions were easy to follow and the fit was perfect. I’ll definitely make this one again!
The instructions were easy to follow and the dress turned out so cute. So glad I purchased the pattern.
