Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?

I may sew one more and would highly recommend it to others.


This is a great pattern that delivers great results in just a few hours of sewing. If you need a dress to wear out to a last minute event this one is it. Supper fast with great results.

Here it is with the McCalls jacket that I made last year. I love the hot pink and black together. I was not sure if I would like the style of this dress on me. I thought if I don't like it on me I can give it to my daughter but I think I will keep it for myself.


  1. Love the dress, it's in my favorite color combination black & white

  2. Very cute. I love the print you chose.

  3. Great dress and like it paired with the pink jacket.

  4. I've just ordered this pattern so I'm really pleased to see what a fabulous dress you have made from it!

  5. I love your version of this dress. Mine came together really fast, too.

  6. You look great in this dress! And the pink jacket works really well with it too-- a completely handmade outfit!

  7. Great dress. Thanks for the review. I may have to buy this one.

  8. Very attractive dress on you! Lovely choice of fabric!
