Eloise looks particularly lovely with heels, sneakers, or even flip flops. Throw on a Kingston jacket or a Cora cardi on the cooler evenings.

  1. Chris M Shapiro

    I love an off the shoulder top. The fit is still roomy and fits the way it was intended without swallowing me up.

  2. Kelley Jowers

    This was my first time shirring! I like to think i’m an “advanced” sewer for how long I’ve been sewing but have never accomplished this skill! Was a great way to practice learning. Definitely have more confidence making another! Love the room allowed in the dress style.

  3. Ana Inês Barros

    What can I say? I have a new favorite maxi dress and I made it so quickly <3

  4. Ann-Marie Abrahams

    This was my first off the shoulder dress, being bigger busted I was worried it would look funny but there was a perfect amount of fabric coverage so that still looked gathered around the bust. The fit is very forgiving so you don’t have to worry too much about the size you pick. A very quick and easy sew and I actually loved how it looked on me!

  5. Shelby Chubb

    Such a great, quick sew! Everything a beginner would need to know is included, which is great! I’m intermediate but don’t have a lot of experience with French seams so the instructions included were perfect. The sew went together without any major hangups, which is unusual for me as I almost always mess something up no matter how “easy” a sew. Looking forward to making this one again.
