    1. A great intro to sewing with knits  star rating

      Posted by Kerri on 20th May 2016

      I have been sewing with woven for years, but haven't really ventured into knits until now. This was an easy pattern to follow, and great for someone starting with knits as it is fairly simple and well detailed. The results are simple and cute.

    2. Excellent pattern  star rating

      I made this as a tank top for my granddaughter...easy to make and looks great. I think she will get the dress next. Top is perfect for using up small leftovers of fabric.

      Made 2 dresses using this pattern. My first knit dresses. The pattern is easy to follow, and easy to sew up.

    5. Amazing  star rating

      Posted by Sabrina Elzer on 8th Jun 2015

      This was the easiest, fastest, true to size pattern that I've ever worked with. Absolutely loved it and recommended it to friends and my sewing groups.

    6. really nice, easy pattern  star rating

      Posted by Suzanne Kirk on 28th May 2015

      Love this pattern so far. I've only made one tank, not the dress, but it's very easy to make. The instructions are clear for beginners and the pattern is a very quick sew. Once you do it a couple of times, you'll be churning these out! My only criticism is that there is an add on you can buy for a regular neckline instead of the gathered neckline. In my opinion, that should be a free option, not an item to purchase, but it's a very minor point. Since the gather only seems to take an inch off the neckline, I will probably just hang my fabric over the pattern that much next time and skip the gathers.

    7. Fantastic Patter  star rating

      This pattern was great. It sewed up quickly and my daughter is in love. I cannot wait to make her more dresses from this pattern.

      Excellent little pattern, the back looks really funky. I've sewn one up as a dress and going to make nighties too! Miss 3 is happy. :-)

    9. Worked for me!  star rating

      I made the small size racerback T for my petite 7 yr old grandaughter. She loved it. All I did was cut it out, 4 thread overlock the seams and edges and hems and Done!!!

    10. Super easy!  star rating

      Posted by Juanita Franke on 7th Aug 2014

      Again, a super easy pattern to create a wide variety of wardrobe options. It takes next to no time to sew up, even if you do the "difficult" option for the bindings. Love this!

      I really like this pattern. It took hardly any time to make, and has a modern, wearable look. I'll be making many more!

    14. Most versatile pattern I own!!  star rating

      Posted by Meg Compton on 5th Jun 2014

      This pattern is perfect for summer! It's the most frequently worn garment for my 18 month old daughter. She has four hanging in her closet... So far. Great for upcycling!!

    15. Super easy for beginner  star rating

      Posted by Daniela Essman on 5th Jun 2014

      This is a super easy sew even for a beginner. I made this dress and it was the first time using knits. The dress turned out great. I have intentions and fabric to make more. I love the wide range of sizes as well.

    16. Super easy and cute summer dress!!  star rating

      Posted by Alicia L. on 29th May 2014

      I’ve made a couple of these now and I love the ease of everything about it. From cutting out and putting together the pattern to sewing it up. It’s a great dress/top for a quick project and hot summer day. The two different binding options gives you two different looks to the final outcome. Would recommend this to anyone! Making adjustments to fit your child is very easy with this pattern as well!

    17. Easy Knit  star rating

      Posted by Becky A. on 28th May 2014

      I love the simplicity of this and it's perfect for summer dresses, summer pajamas or bathing suit cover-ups. For us this pattern runs big and I ended up taking it in and will make a size smaller next time.

    18. Easy Summer Dress  star rating

      Posted by Vanessa Edwards on 23rd May 2014

      Very simple, perfect dress for summer. Pattern instructions are very clear, and the fit is great on my daughter.
