An awesome pattern..I love that we can use woven for the bottom tiers of the skirt..
Kayla Kissane –
Very easy to follow dress pattern. Love the boat neck option!
Tracy Santander –
If you love maxis and twirl factor, Paris Day Dress is for you. If you have done ruffles or gathering before, then it will be a quick sew for you.
Jen Vincilione –
Great dress pattern. I enjoyed the semi fitted bodice, I’m going to try using woven for the skirt next!
Genevieve Lynne Grossmann –
I really enjoyed this sew – it has such a pretty result but is fun and quick. There are so many variations one can do with this pattern.
such a cute dress! Just love the simple classy design. So many choices for fabrics in the tiered skirt but still fabulously simple with the 1 tier
Brittney McCann –
This dress has so many options! I made the short sleeve, scoop neck, three tiered version. I was able to use my serger for the majority of the sewing and that made this a quick sew.
Magda Rindmo –
A easy pattern with a wonderful outcome. A happy, playful pattern. I will make many more of this!
Kim Wester –
I really enjoyed sewing this dress! I have never sewed cap sleeves, and was very delighted how it all came together after I finished the armscye hem. I wasn’t sure my gathers would look OK, but they look amazing, and after I overlocked all the seams, my dress looks professionally-sewn. Thank you Rebecca Page Patterns again for the sewing education and the wonderful pattern.
Joan Edmondson –
As soon as I saw the Paris day dress released, I knew I had to make it. The dress has a slightly casual feel but can also be dressed up. The pattern was easy to follow and fit so well. My only minor comment would be to slightly change the size of the arm hole for the cap sleeve version to a smaller size to provide a little size coverage. But I love the pattern as it is. I see myself making a bunch of these this summer
Jess Boaz-Head –
Great options! I adore the boatneck and all the sleeve options. The three tiered skirt has my heart!!
Carrie Wilson –
What a sweet and comfortable dress. It truly feels like it could be worn all day and I’m not a dress person! Very flattering and I love the gathered skirt.
Beth Barton –
“Such a sweet vintage neckline on this dress! I had to shorten the neckband considerably to get it to lay flat, and the bodice could’ve been extended a few inches to accommodate a full bust, but this is a beautifully simple, unfussy pattern that makes a lovely summer dress.
Allow plenty of time for gathering, and be aware that if you would like to make the middle skirt tier sheer, the first tier edge falls very high; you might want to extend that and then shorten the next few tiers.”
Andreia de Almeida –
This dress is so gorgeous. The neckline is so pretty and it’s such a comfortable dress. There is a substantial amount of gathering involved, but it’s very much worth it for the final product!
Adelle Pears –
I love this pattern! You can have some real fun with the tiered version and pattern placement/direction. There are so many options with the different necklines, sleeves and skirts. My whole knit supply has just been waiting to become a Paris day dress! It’s really comfortable and practical too.
Mary Acosta –
Love love love,,,will be making another with 1 tier
June Butchee –
The Paris Day Dress is a quick, flattering sew. You can make it with different sleeve lengths for whatever weather you would like to make it for. It can be casual or dressy depending on your fabric choice and accessories. A big plus is that it is so comfortable to wear.
Mel Cornwall –
Such a lovely make. The ruffles are just adorable. Perfect fit. The most comfortable dress I own.
Pamela Turner Munnerlyn –
I loved making this dress. Very quick and easy to do. I know I will be making more of these in the future.
Angel Pooley –
Cute dress and so comfortable in jersey fabric. Simple sew with great instructions
Sarah Hopkins –
Although simple to sew it does take a bit of tweaking to get the fitting right. It came on the big size on me. I love the different options and would like to try the 3 tier ruffles next. Fabric choice is so important for this one!
Kainui Nihipali –
The Paris Day dress is a beginner sew and quick with a serger, which I used. I love the flow and relaxed fit of the skirt. I made a size medium for a family friend & am looking forward to her pictures! I adjusted for height in the bodice & think it turned out great. I’m excited to sew a few more dresses!
Charlene Lee –
I like the ease of this pattern and the nice shape it takes on when finished. It is a very comfortable dress and I will be making more . Love the clear instructions to put it together.
Alba Gallifa Hurtado –
I’ve sewed the Paris day dress in size S with a cotton fabric that I think looks great with this retro model. Cup sleeves and one tier in the skirt.
This pattern has been a great surprise. At first sight seemed to be a boring long dress but it’s amazing how you offer so much options on the same pattern and I ended with a great long and delicate cotton dress that I’ll use a lot this summer. I’ve loved the sleeves and the neck. It’s a simple sew with a great result.
Sandy Salierno –
This dress was a dream to sew! It gives lots of practice with gathers and is an easy way to get more familiar with knits. The best part has to be wearing it. It’s hands down the single best day-friendly twirl I’ve ever seen.
Jennifer Lichak –
What a lovely and quick pattern!
Abby Villarreal –
This is a great dress with a lot of options for customization! It is a good way to use fabric that has 2-way stretch in different ways, as there is an option to make one of the tiers of the 3-tier skirt opposite grain than the rest of the dress. Also, having both short and long sleeve options makes this a go-to pattern for any time of year!
Luana Furlanetto –
“The only challenge of this dress is gathering. But I have to say that it was a great project to try new gathering techniques! Besides that, it was pretty quick and easy. I made it in cotton spandex, and I might try it in DBP in the future.
I love how flowy it is!”
Susan Pearson –
Great pattern! Easy sew, can be made to look casual or dressy. Really nice options with materials and pattern pieces.
Deb Sendelbach –
What a fun, fun, fun dress to make. I love it!
April Moore –
Such a quick and beautiful sew! I love that it has so many different options for different looks. I also love that it is a looser, more flowy style which is nice for summer!
Jade Burton –
The day dress of dreams! In love with my new Paris Day Dress, it’s the perfect edition to my spring wardrobe, once again there are a variety of ways of making this dress to suit individual style – which is just amazing! I opted for the tiered dress with 3/4 length sleeves so that I could do some colour blocking although I know for a fact this dress would look fabulous with the same fabric for each tier. Plus the pattern is super easy to follow which is always amazing.
TaWanna Archia –
This is a pretty straight forward pattern but a lot of gathering. The last tier is was too wide for the fabric I chose. Overall easy pattern.
Debra Eichenberger –
This might be one of the easiest dresses I’ve ever sewn! Perfect for summer and I adore the cap sleeve. Can’t wait to make more!
Hannah Burke –
So easy & comfortable to wear! I love the summery feel and it’s versatility. It could be worn on the beach or to the office depending on how you style it. The instructions were very clear, it came together quickly. Just make sure you use a stretch fabric with good recovery on that bodice & neckband!!
Katherine Harris –
This is a super simple dress to stitch up and is flattering with a nice fitted bodice and three gathered tiers in the skirt! Perfect for spring and summer.
Michelle Harrington –
The Paris Day is a fun make and it’s absolutely adorable. I can see me making many more of these.
Irene Grimes –
Great Pattern, even though I found this one a bit more challenging than all other RP patterns!
Monica Rennicker –
The options for this pattern are amazing. Relatively easy pattern. Love the fullness of the skirt.
