  1. Trista

    Love the bodice and construction of this dress. Well written and fun to sew.

  2. Anne (verified owner)

    I’ve made a dress and a top with this fun pattern. I had a little trouble with the neckline at first, but it more user error than the pattern.

  3. grace412kids (verified owner)

    I bought this pattern right after it was released. Last week I finally made my first out of a fun floral knit. I fell totally in love with it. The fit is perfect and and the instructions for the neckline were easy to follow. I can’t wait to make a classy black version!

  4. Margaret (verified owner)

    I love this dress! It was super easy to put together and amazingly fast. It was rated just a 4 because the neck hung backwards off the nape of my neck so I had to modify the shawl part. Another good thing about the pattern- I used the bottom to make skirts for my mother just by adding a waistband with a elastic threaded through. She loves them because they have POCKETS!

    I learned about this sewing pattern from Karina Trinidad’s Lifting Pins and Needles YouTube.com tutorial. I needed to quickly sew up some dresses for a new job and thought this dress was very elegant and chic while providing comfort. This is my first Love Notions pattern. Since I am short-waisted, I lengthened the bodice by 1.5″and graded a size large to extra large at the waist to accommodate my fullness. These alterations were so easy to make because the sewing pattern is well-drafted and comes with a variety of size options which helped me efficiently sew 2 dresses in one day.I assembled the paper pattern, traced my size, made adjustments and cut out the fabric with the markings the day before. To help understand how to create the shawl collar I reviewed both the Karina Trinidad and Love Notions’ YouTube.com tutorials. The written instructions with accompanying photos are very clear as well but I love watching sewing videos! Nevertheless I still had trouble with sewing the shawl collar due to my poor marking, a fussy fabric and my impatience! I had to resort to some hand sewing on the shoulder seam because I couldn’t create a 90 degree angle. Again user error/doing things too quickly. Sewing the shawl collar was a new experience and was a joy to accomplish. I finished the hem seam with a lace finish. I felt so elegant and stylish in this beautiful dress. I cannot believe how easy and quick it was to make!

    This is such a comfortable and nice looking dress to wear. The neckline was a little tricky for me (just because I rush through things too often), but once I stopped, read my instructions carefully, watched the very helpful video, I nailed it. I just need to make more.

  7. mrs.jweston (verified owner)

    The bodice and collar construction are genius! I was able to watch the video to help walk me through the process. It’s not very challenging once you know what you are supposed to do. I didn’t make the muslin as suggested and was still able to wear my garment. I didn’t do any adjustments. The shoulders seem to be a little tight on me (not a problem I usually have) but I think it’s because the fabric used has quite a bit of recovery and body. Great pattern! The collar is my favorite part.

  8. abbott.heather (verified owner)

    Easier sew than it looks. Love the way the collar comes out different depending on the structure of the fabric.

  9. Jaye Holland (verified owner)

    So many options with this flattering dress.

  10. ELiza (verified owner)

    The perfect work dress! The front mimics a V-neck which I love. Sleeve and length options so it can adapt to all seasons. I made the sleeveless for work and can throw on a Canyon Cardi in the office. Easy pattern and stylish. Did I mention DD bust options? LOVE!!!!!!!!!!

  11. Margaret (verified owner)

    So easy to sew and a beautiful fit. I am long waisted so added 2 inches to bodice, so easy to do. I am uncomfortable in dresses, but not this one.

  12. Debbie Groves (verified owner)

    Beautiful well fitting dress.

  13. candis.wright (verified owner)

    I made the maxi dress with 3/4 sleeves. I followed the instructions carefully for the neckline and it came together perfectly. I had to make an adjustment to the sleeves (typical for me, large upper arms). I always get compliments when I wear it and the only thing I regret is that the fabric I used ended up being of lesser quality than I had thought. So it won’t last for years…I guess I will just have to make another!

  14. Dianna (verified owner)

    A classic, timeless staple that belongs in every wardrobe!

  15. Deneane Keane (verified owner)

    I thought the collar might be difficult to sew but it’s not. This is a very pretty, classy dress!

  16. Alison (verified owner)

    This dress pattern is super cute. I made the knee-length sleeveless version in ponte. I was really happy with how well it turned out. The instructions were easy to follow. Can’t wait to make another one when I get the right fabric for it.

  17. kathleenniemerg (verified owner)

    The fun “collar” is a lovely but simple detail that makes this dress a great classic wardrobe piece. The instructions were clear and even though the neck/collar seems like it should be tricky it really came together well.

  18. Andrea Cosens (verified owner)

    Made the maxi length with short sleeve version. I felt like the dress it good but not great. I do want to make it again, with a fabric that I like more than my first version. Felt like the pattern was good overall

  19. Colleen (verified owner)

    This dress is so elegant! I made a black and white full-length maxi version and it is incredible. The collar part is a little tricky but the instructions and the supporting videos are really clear and helpful. The best part is the maxi version is ACTUALLY maxi length for us tall people! I am 5’10” and I did not have to lengthen the skirt…PLUS IT HAS POCKETS!!!!
