Alright ladies, this dress is a MUST SEW now. I started my dress the day the pattern arrived and completed it over a 3 day period. I chose a crepe knit in a turquoise, brown and ivory retro graphic print. The Wow factor is off the charts! This design is very figure flattering, classic and you can adjust it however you like. Pattern directions are very clear and easy to follow. For a special treat, please watch the how-to video. Trudy is a delight and offers great time-saving tips. Enjoy!
