      First time maker

      Really excellent. Clear graphics and instructions. Probably a bit more guidance on side slit would have helped me. Will be making many more

      • Any tips or advice to other makers? Dont by pass anyof the instructions. Work in toile first if you can

      Box pleat love

      Fantastic pattern, goes together easily and the instructions are well written. I love this dress and am planning my second, and third

      • Any tips or advice to other makers? I was bordering two sizes, should have gone down as to me it runs a bit large.

      Box pleat dress.

      Really enjoyed making this dress. Very classic lines. Love the unusually large sleeves that don't overpower the dress. Very clear instructions. Will be making a lot more. A real staple pattern for multiple uses. A little expensive but worth it.

      Easy to wear, makes a statement without bells and whistles, just this fantastic trapeze shape and the lovely box pleat detail at the back. I dropped the neckline 1.5" and added a bit extra flare in the back (personal preference). Perfect for popping on when you only have 5 mins to get ready but you want to look put-together! Lovely in a linen blend with some drape to soften the trapeze effect, but would be fun in a crisp poplin too!
