Good Pattern

This is a nice pattern. The directions for cutting out the fabric and sewing the bodice were great except for the interfacing. It did not explain how to eliminate the raw edges of the fabric. I've been working with a novice student who is learning to sew. That section was very confusing for her and even with my direct help, it was difficult. When I sewed it, I just used another piece of fabric and it went better for me because I was able to easily solve the raw edge problem. Other than that, the pattern has been wonderful and the directions are very clear.

Delightful!!!!!!!!

I love this pattern. So fun and fulfilling to see such an amazing creative dress spring forth. Keepers Dolly Dud Designs is my favorite designer. I watch daily for new patterns to their page. Thank you Keepers!
