See below for reviews of this pattern:
"This dress is made of cotton summer stripe fabric. I was intimidated by the strange pattern shapes, but actually, it was easy. I might make this dress again in an organza, with a silk lining. This one is perfect for the beach anyway. It took me all day on Saturday, but it was finished in time to wear to the Art Deco Ball in San Francisco, the theme was "Flying Down To RIO!'' This was the perfect dress for the event!"

"Just precious, although I was able to modify the back in order to install a zipper without tying the flourishes. Super duper pattern"

Just precious, although I was able to modify the back in order to install a zipper without tying the flourishes. Super duper pattern.

Just gorgeous! I cut this paper pattern last night and was thrilled with the quality of the paper--not too heavy, not too light (picky detail, I know, but I like good paper for patterns). It is clear and easy-to-read. Also, the seller could not be sweeter!! This is my new favorite pattern source. :)

I found this pattern to be exactly as pictured. The instructions were easy to follow. I did make a few adjustments to the finished product by using snap instead of a zipper. I was also using it for a much small person but found it easy to adjust.
