This dress is very easy to make and the directions are perfect. You will not be disappointed with the results.
I just love the 1950's Silhouette Dress pattern. I bought a similar pattern at JoAnn's but it was ridiculously over complicated to put together; I threw it away. This pattern is well designed and very easy to understand. I did make 'notches' in the fabric when I cut it out so I could more easily match the skirt pieces. I've made several dresses now and love each one.
This is a lovely pattern to sew. The instructions were easy to follow. I made mine a little different. No sleeves or collar and and invisible zip down the back. Looks really smart.
I love all the patterns, it gives me a chance to make stylish clothes for my granddaughter. Thank you for your website.
The 1950's Silhouette Dress pattern is wonderful. I've whipped up a half dozen since I got it. It's not difficult and the results are elegant yet simple. You can dress it up with a few embellishments to add some pizazz and you can use the removable collar or not and it looks good either way. I think this is probably my favorite dress pattern to make so far.
