    I made the sleeveless dress version of this pattern, the instructions are clear and easy to understand. The pattern went together very well, I am very happy with this pattern

    I made the Lyric dress version in a woven stretch cotton sateen from Mood. It turned out very nicely. I raised the neckline by 1 inch, and am not certain that I needed to do that. The full bust option was so convenient, I did lower the darts, added 3/4 inch to the upper back, and adjusted the back darts to accommodate my waist. Then I made a shirt with the short bishop sleeves, that turned out flattering, also. I may make another using Karina’s no button hack. This is such a good pattern.

    Instructions were clear. Fit wasn’t quite as accurate with this lyric dress than other Love Notions patterns I’ve used but still an adorable dress. And, that’s what muslins are for!! I’ll definitely be making another lyric dress… or top…. can’t decide!
