This pattern was quick and easy and my dress loving 4.5 year old highly approves. With cute kitty fabric also from PAB it was a win win, will be making more!

Forgot about my daughters christmas program for preschool, was able to make this dress in under an hour! Was a huge hit with my princess! Love that I can use it for years to come as she grows!

Superb and simple. Love the range of sizes. I had issues with the first neckline binding style not being stretchy enough. Head hole was too tight and stitches popped. The 2nd neckline binding style worked great. I used a serger to make this. I'll be making several more.

So I bought this because my 3 year old wanted a tutu top and this fit the bill. These made up super quick and easy (with it being my first time working with knit), and I love making these dresses and tops!

I loved how quick and easy this dress is! I made 2 playdresses and they are my toddler's favorites!

Just made the play dress option for my grand-daughter. Directions were very easy to follow, sewed the dress in 1 hour and it is so cute! Can't wait to see her wearing it.

My daughter wanted a "fancy" dress to wear to the ballet. I altered the hemline to be a hi-low skirt. She loved how it looked so grown up!

I love all of the options with this pattern! I made the partially lined option and the only really difficult part was working with the exterior knit; understanding the instructions and everything else was a breeze. Amy is a fabulous pattern writer!
I haven't done the unlined play dress option yet, but I imagine it would work up quickly and be super easy. Can't wait to make more!

Love how easy this pattern is to follow. I did the play dress option- and love how that can be easily customized. Looking forward to trying the fancier dress option.

This pattern is very versatile and customizable, and very easy to sew. I've already made two dresses in partially lined and unlined options, and I plan to make at least three more in the coming days.

I made 4 play dress versions of this pattern. Very similar to the styles that you would pay $20+ dollars for in the stores. Super easy, and a quick sew, less than 1/2 hour.

Quick and easy pattern to follow with great results. Dress fit true to size. I made the play dress version and my DD is using it as pajamas. I am excited to try out the other variations.

Versatile dress and easy and quick to do. I love this pattern it is great for any material that stretches. Can make casual to elegant dresses easily. Well worth to have this in your pattern collection.

I feel like I got two completely different patterns for the price of one. The play dress version is so adorable and classic as well as quick to whip up. The party dress version is gorgeous and so easy to follow. I highly recommend this pattern!

I've made 3 Gloria play dresses to date and find them to be a very quick and enjoyable make. The pattern pieces go together very well and the instructions are clear and concise. I'd most definitely recommend this pattern.

This dress is so easy and looks so great! My daughters got the same type of dress from a store and love the style. Now they can have many many more! To make it even easier, I use shirts and use the existing hems. Makes this fast sew even faster!

I haven't got to make this one yet, but am looking forward to sewing it. There are so many options for this design.
Posted by Amy on 20th Nov 2014
Easy to follow directions and a great dress pattern to make. I so far have only done the play dress.
