  1. Lisa

    I have always loved play dresses and legging for my girls- cute and comfortable for them to really live in, so I was so excited to find a pattern in that style. Super simple construction and it works up quickly. Well written pattern that gives great results.

    If you sew for girls, buy this pattern! With various style modifications, I’ve made six versions in the last couple of years.
    Her patterns consistently fit well and are of completely professional quality. I have no hesitation recommending her
    patterns to anyone.

    Such an adorable dress and another great pattern from Love Notions!

    I plan on making these as gifts for my nieces as my daughter only needs so many but the pattern is so easy and fun that I just want to keep making more!

  6. Trista

    So cute. Simple buy adorable. As always the instructions are well written and easy to follow.


    Have made this so many times for my grandchildren and they love it. No zips buttons just pull it on and this they like. Sad because they are 9 and 7 now and growing out of the pattern sizes.

    I made this for my granddaughter, utlilising the mash-up; I used the Skater skirt in woven as she loves ‘twirly’ skirts, also added pockets in the seams, and made the crossover top in a UV reactive jersey. It all worked beautifully and the pattern was so very easy to follow. I’ll use this pattern again!
