Rated 1 out of 5 by SandyF from Dont like patterns you must piece together w/tape Love the look, but dont like to have to piece together pattern tissue before cutting. Really irritating. Cant you just spend a penny or two more to have the pattern in one piece? I know , I know it says to join together pattern pieces before cutting. But i also thought it meant to cut 2 different pieces. Join together can also mean stitch, so if you must have the pattern pieces in chunks, and not one contiguous piece, say "tape" the pattern pieces together, but do not CUT 2 separate pieces...or something to that effect...Also needs a close up of buckle on line. Cannot see it clearly on pattern.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cats from The Best! I have been really enjoying back-wrap dresses since I found one in a vintage shop a little while back, and this pattern has become an instant favorite. I made the longer length variation, but used the waist tie and big happy pockets of the shorter version. The dress was easy to construct, super comfortable, and very flattering on a curvy figure (with no adjustments necessary!).

Rated 5 out of 5 by A Highschool Student from Super easy to sew, and comfortable to wear. This dress is absolutely gorgeous, and easy enough for a beginner sewer (me)! I struggled a little to get the bust to fit, as it is patterned for a slightly curvier figure, but the instructions were very clear. If you make the hem just a tad shorter, it looks pretty modern. Paired with a jean jacket, I can wear this anywhere. So pleased with this!
