    This dress is the perfect summer dress and i will be making lots more for my daughters!! My daughter was quite literally ripping it out of my hands as i finished the straps.
    Rebecca is turning out to be a great designer with lovely use of techniques in her garment making and her clear and concise instructions just make sewing them a breeze.

    It’s a fun, easy to follow pattern with a wide range of options to play with. You could really dress this up or down – depending on fabric/notion options.

    To absolutely get it as it’s a lovely look & the 3 length options give heaps of flexibility. Without distraction I think you could easily make one in an hour or just over.

    I would say it is an easy/fast sew with a beautiful outcome; lots of fabric choices to use; adding trim gives you creative freedom.

    My favorite part was the ‘big reveal’ at the end when the casing was done and it all worked out. I also loved the back elastic feature. The ‘french seam’ was a neat way to finish the bodice / skirt though and I will use it on other patterns I make.

    I love the overall look of the finished product, and that wovens can be used. Buy it now! Easy sew, but with great instructions to give neat seams and encased elastics.

    This is a wonderful sun dress pattern. It can be either formal or casual depending on your fabric choices

    As with all Rebbeca’s patterns, this one is easy to follow. Even when using techniques that are a little less common, her explanations and illustrations make it easy.

    It’s an easy pattern to follow. First time really sewing with knit and getting over an irrational fear.

    I loved the chest crossover, and the way it was put together. So fun.
