Rated 5 out of 5 by winn from Super Cute Dress! Loved how it turned out. I bought this to make a dress for my daughter for the Homecoming dance. Instructions were great and turned out beautiful. I used a sequined fabric for the top layer and used view A in the short dress. Clear instructions but should have some experience sewing before using this pattern.. It is made for a more intermedete seamstress. I did not use the boning as I didn't think it needed it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by susieqpon from Turned out beautifully My high school aged daughter sewed view A for her 4-H sewing project. It may look like a simple dress to sew with the simple lines, but it was quite difficult. She had help from two very experienced seamstresses, one of whom has had a lot of experience sewing formal dresses. They had trouble understanding some of the instructions---the instructions just did not make sense at times. The dress did turn out beautifully though!

Rated 2 out of 5 by LindaLane from Mistakes in pattern I am an experienced seamstress, but this pattern is giving me fits. I am trying to make view A. (I spent a small fortune on fabric.) The sleeves on the overlay are not matching up with the seam binding. The pattern says to stretch the seam binding to fit, but the seam binding is much longer than the sleeve edge. I have checked and double checked the pattern against the cut fabric and cannot find any mistakes in cutting. (I think they forgot to extent the edge of one of the sleeves based on the different sizes.) Because the overlay is lace, it is not possible to tear out the stitches too many times, trying to make it right. I'm stuck now with winglike sleeves, due to the lace being stretched to fit, or having to start all over. (Pattern A gets a 1 star, but the other views might be just fine, so I'm giving it a two for that reason.)

Rated 1 out of 5 by Red Tide from missing instructions and piece Dress B missing instructions and pattern piece for binding to finish top of view B The instructions are some what inter-mingled and I would not recommend this to someone one who is not good at just picking up a piece and making it with little help. I had hoped this would have a correction here.
