Rated 4 out of 5 by Asas from A few cautions I found buttonhole elastic and buttons worked much better than ribbons to tie the front sides together. I sewed the ties in by hand. My fabric had a vertical design. The fabric was a tiny bit too narrow when I centered the design so I matched and and added a corner of fabric using double sided sticky lacy iron on tape. It will be hidden under the back wrap anyway.

Rated 2 out of 5 by mermaid82001 from Not an easy dress to sew, Intrigued by this reversible dress and the envelope stating it was "easy", I bought it. The directions need to be more specific and detailed, i.e., this dress needs store-bought ribbon for one side, and you will sew the ties for the other side. I'm no dummy, but this pattern is confusing. I haven't completed the dress(es) yet, but will persevere.

Rated 1 out of 5 by shadowmousey from Extremely Irritated You know what knowledge would have been useful to include somewhere on the back of this pattern? The fact that you absolutely cannot make it as printed with 45" fabric if the pattern runs vertically. That would have saved me about $50 today. So, you know, thanks for that.
