Rated 2 out of 5 by CathyB from Great look on the pattern packaging I just loved this pattern first time I saw it. I followed the directions to a 't' and made the necessary adjustments for being small busted, but a little muffin top. This pattern was easy enough to follow, but once I made the bodice and tried it on, the collar wouldn't lay flat& if I adjusted for the collar to lay flat, it climbed up the back of neck, the button placement, imo, was too high and not enough over to accomodate for the bust. It turned out to be a nightmare once it was sewn together.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Mary15 from Great Look! I made this last year with some help from my sewing tutor, an amazing lady. I saw this and had to make it. Yes, I didn't understand some instructions, but it was only my second dress project. The dress looks nice and is great to wear. The bottom of the collar does curve up a bit sometimes, but, overall, it's a nice dress. I chose some flower buttons instead of self-covering ones; they finished the vintage-look.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Arya Snark from I created a Haunted Mansion Disney dress with this pattern and it fits me like a glove. I had to do some minor adjustments to the pattern because I'm much taller than the proportions it provides, but overall, I'm happy with it.
