“I never write reviews, but I had to add one here after purchasing this several years ago. Not only is the dress easy, versatile and beautiful, it's superbly presented and produces professional results. Even more, I have used this pattern so, so many times as a basis for other clothing - using the top and adding a different bottom, etc. Really a winner.”

easy to make for my job!
So EASY!!! perfect for a beginner!
I am an experienced seamstress, and thought I would try a new A-line dress pattern with this one, I liked the back closure and no obnoxious buttons on the shoulder. I didn't see in the description that it wasn't fully lined, however. I chose to go ahead and follow the pattern as is first, and as is, I'm not happy. If I alter it to make it fully lined, I would like it better, and it could even be reversible (hence 4 stars) But as the pattern is, I would give it 3 stars.
I was a little confused at first but once I figured it out it was easy and quick!!
Love this pattern! Great instructions and pictures on sewing. The only thing I can't get right is putting the pattern together. Put my 1cm between each pattern piece like they said but still have to add length. But other than that this is a great pattern.
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this pattern. SO clear and easy to understand! :) Perfect for a monogram on the front and very cute plain as well! Sew easy to make reversible, too! :) By far, my favorite "go to" pattern for little girls!
I love this dress! It is so quick and easy to make. I've made three of them already. It seems to run a bit small so I usually make one size up and it works perfectly. I love it!
Nice dress and good pattern for a beginner.
I like this A-line better than any other. I prefer the button in the back rather than the shoulders. So much room for versatility when spicing up the front! Thank you so much!
great pattern, easy to follow instructions. Made it in an adorable red plaid for Christmas.
I LOVE THIS PATTERN. It's very simple and easy to follow.
I love this dress. I love this pattern. Super easy to follow and put together. You will not be disappointed with this pattern! Two thumbs up!
Loved making this for my grandaughter. She loved wearing it.
Excellent pattern instructions and presentation.
Very happy customer!!
I love this pattern! So versatile, plain in summer or with shirt adn leggings in winter! My daughter loves wearing her a-line dress too!
This is such a pleasant and easy pattern.
This pattern has become my "go-to" pattern when I need something fast & simple. Easy to make and lovely on.
I made this dress last night for my six-year-old in bright pink with polka-dots. She wore it to school today and got SO many compliments! I love this project because of its ease and because it looks so tailored. I can't wait to make more!
I love this pattern! So simple and perfect for those of us who hate making buttonholes!!! You could easily make several of these in a day, because it is simple and quick.
A lovely A-line dress with a cute button detail. It is easy to follow, easy to cut out and looks wonderful when made. I have used this pattern many times.
Super easy to make. I made three of these in one evening! They looked absolutely adorable on my little nieces. I plan to make tons more. They are just too easy!
This is the BEST a-line dress pattern ever!!!! I made 2 dresses for my girl and 1 for my nephew. I can't get enough of this dress :-)) Lays perfectly in every inch!
I looked forever for an aline dress with back closure, and I was so thrilled with this one. It sews up quickly and has a cute shape.
Loved this pattern! The dress was super simple to make and went together easily. I really like how it has the simple button closure on the back instead of on the shoulders. My daughter loves it too!
I sew a ton of these. So versatile and easy to follow directions.
One of my favorites so far!
Wonderful pattern, so easy to follow! Has a more finished look than a pillowcase dress. I will be making more of these for sure! Thank you so much for the pattern!
Last summer, I made my daughter and her doll EIGHT matching tops and dresses. This is, by far, my daughter's favorite top pattern.
I've had so many requests for A-Line dresses and this one was a prize. It was so easy to make and the finished products...let just say there are quiet a few well dressed little girls in my town! Thanks so much!
Finally! The true SIMPLE A-line we've all been searching for! By just lining the bodice, no tacky bias tape and no complicated completely lined/reversible drama! Thank you! So cute and so easy!
Made this in one sitting. Super easy, super quick. I love the classic A-Line.
one of my favorite dresses to make!
This dress was so simple and quick to sew! I think it took me about two hours start to finish...and that's with me going very slowly and double and triple checking the instructions before I sew. Did I mention how cute it came out? It is so adorable, I'll be filling my daughter's wardrobe with tons of these jumpers!
I made this pattern today! I love A line dresses but I detest button holes! This is perfect! It took me about an hour to sew the first one but now that I know how to do it, I am sure it will be much faster! I can't wait to finish sewing the others I have cut out!!!!
