Not as easy as it looks

I had to print and piece together the pattern pages, which didn't match up as well as I would have liked. One pattern piece needs to be placed wrong side up when laid out for cutting but you have to figure that out for yourself. Piece 1 is not labeled to be cut ON THE FOLD so I had to make a seam to fix the error. The directions overall took several readings to understand fully. I have been sewing for 20 years. This is not EASY and does take some prior sewing knowledge to stumble through it. The final product is nice, if a bit too large.

Hi Lory, many thanks for the review and helpful feedback. The pattern text for the FRONT part had mistakenly been placed hidden on the PDF-pattern for A4 and US Letter - now fixed! (You can see the text on the AO-file). We will send an updated pattern to all PDF-pattern buyers. So sorry about the mistake and your disappointment with the pattern. Best regards, Anki

Would not recommend

First time I have used an assembly line pattern , not sure if I would buy another one . Love the idea of the dress as I live in the tropics …. When I looked at the measurements… huge , I am a medium, cut the smallest size , just too much fabric around the body … needs to graded down to a smaller size . The dress goes together easily once you throw away the appallingly written instructions, good luck if you are a beginner…… if you know how to construct a garment from a photo it is a very easy make …. very disappointed considering the price of the pattern which I thought was expensive for what you got . I would not recommend this pattern.

So versatile!

As usual with TAL patterns, this came together like a satisfying puzzle. I made it long as is. I made it short like a summery dress suitable for evenings out. And I plan to make it as a blouse. It’s a cute layer in colder weather too! This pattern has so many possibilities… I see topstitching and color blocking in my future.

So versatile.

As usual with TAL patterns, this came together like a satisfying puzzle. The diagonal seams in the front and the set in pockets are so stylish. I’ve made it long and I’ve made it short. The short one is cute is a tunic over layers in cooler temps. I also plan to make it a blouse. This pattern has so many possibilities… topstitching and colorblocking are in my future :)
