Rated 5 out of 5 by waxesnostalgic from Gorgeous dress with elegant look This is a really classy pattern. I made it out of some extra costume suede I had, which was probably not the best fabric choice, but this pattern is good enough that it still looks very professional. This dress is very flattering to my curves and slimming, as I made it in solid black. I get many compliments on it. I had a little difficulty with the pleats at the middle of the skirt, and getting the arrow point right on the bodice front. It is kind of rounded on my dress, but I don't suppose anyone notices. The instructions on that point were not particularly clear. I made it during a weekend and it came together without a great deal of trouble. I almost want to make another!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Mary15 from Beautiful Front! I made this as a Christmas dress in cotton fabrics--I couldn't find any other fabric I liked. It has a beautiful fit. It was hard sewing the front of the dress, and my lining didn't line up correctly, but it turned out pretty anyway. It has a great look to it.
