Love this but I am too short waisted to wear this style. I am already top heavy and this style really makes it obvious. However I am saving this because I have daughters this style would be perfect for. Birthday presents!

This dress pattern is so adorable and feminine. It's not easy to get the gathered pattern on the bodice but you get the hang of it after going through this pattern. The bottom part of this dress is A line so it's perfect for most people. I would wear this to a wedding reception but make sure the colours blend in.

Definitely I love it, still new to sewing but you made me feel like a pro! Thank you.

Yet another totally feminine, pretty dress pattern, thank you! I am going to change the fabric and color choices to ones that appeal more to my tastes but the pattern is detailed and easy to follow so, even though it is rated Intermediate, I think I will be able to do it without any problems.

I love the 1950s shape of this dress. I'd love to make this with simple black and white I think you could wear it with a red lip and really make it pop.

Love your dresses but cannot decide which one,we are spoiled for choice.Thank you.

AHH I need to make this! These are my favorite colors!

I can't get enough of these flared-out dresses! SO cute!
