Nice pattern

I liked the pattern when I saw it. For me the front neckline is too high - I would take at least 4-5 cm off. Around the bust the dress is very roomy - too roomy for me. The description on how to sew the box pleat was very confusing for me and I had to redo it several times. But with some alterations I would sew the dress again.

Easy to Follow / Minimal Design

The TAL Box Pleat Dress was an excellent introduction for me to sewing. With incredibly easy-to-follow instructions, including a visual glossary of basic sewing terminology and techniques, this pattern gave me the confidence to begin my sewing journey. I'm still hooked on sewing two years on, all thanks to this pattern. The design of the dress is minimal, with subtle details, making it timeless and unique (like the rest of TALs patterns!). Definitely a pattern you can make over and over again.
