LOVE this pattern. This is by far the easiest pattern ever, imho. It is certainly my favorite pattern of the many I've purchased through this site. fast and easy!
Yes this is an awesome pattern. But definitely by pre-made bias tape. A must here.
This is a great summer dress, for the hot & humid days. Easy to put together.
This dress is just adorable! It is a really easy to follow pattern. I love using my own handmade bias tape on these dressed, but buying pre-made works saves time. But I loved the unique and custom look when making your own bias tape.
Great pattern! I have used the pockets on several other pieces of handmade clothing and they are a hit!
Turned out very cute! If you are new to sewing a narrow binding, invest in a roll of wonder tape. It will help you give you a better finished look. The dress is really cute and worth learning to work with binding.
This is an awesome pattern. Save yourself the time and effort, and buy pre-made bias tape, and you can make this dress rather quickly. Plus, I love that it has an interesting back and doesn't look like all other dresses out there.
Very sweet dress. The narrow binding is a bit tricky, but its so cute when its finished it makes it all worth it.
