    Quick and easy sew using cotton and made a really cute and comfy top for my daughter! Love the neat finishing techniques!

  14. Val Berkenpas

    This was a delightful pattern with enough options to make it work for all seasons. The instructions are clear and concise with excellent photos accompanying the layout. I made it in cotton but I am sure any soft flowing fabric would also be very suitable.

    This is an easy yet pretty blouse to sew and a chance to use border print.

    Such a quick easy sew with an amazing result! My daughter loves this dress very much!

  21. Anna Metcalf

    This dress totally reminds me of a cute sundress, or a walk on the beach kind of dress. If you don’t make your bias tape, then it’s a super quick sew and gives great results!

  22. Alyssa Finn

    St Tropez is a darling “quick” sew that can look so different with different fabric types used! I made my first in a cute woven cotton I had around and now I want about a bajillion more for my dress loving kiddo! Definitely a staple to have around!

  23. Hildur Gudmundsdottir

    A beautiful pattern. I was sure that there would be a lot more steps in order to create this lovely piece. Was surprisingly glad to find out that there were such few steps. Has a nice variety of options and the possibility to create a simple yet elegant piece.
