    I was not crazy about the look of the Book Report dress. However, my daughter choose it for me to sew for her two year old. It went together very easily and love the button detail on the shoulders and cuffs. Can't wait to see it on my grandaughter. It is so cute.


    5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Such Fun! (to sew and to wear), 7/3/2013

    Reviewer: (Tintinara, South Australia, Australia )

    This is such a fun pattern to sew. Everything fits together perfectly and the instructions are brilliant with tips on pre-neatening seams which I always appreciate. I upsized the size 12 for my teenage daughter. http://fiveandcounting-motherof5.blogspot.com.au/2013/04/a-big-book-report.html I also made a size 2 for my 4 year old, which I lengthened to a 4. http://www.flickr.com/photos/motherof5/9162740881/ I find the length more tunic then dress so I would advise adding a wee bit of length to the top front and back bodice if that may be an issue. Its is not a skimpy dress so do make sure you check your daughters chest measurement and draft your pattern accordingly. The PDF pattern is brilliant. Instead of realms of paper that have to be pieced to make a great whopping sheet, oliver+s print the small pattern pieces on single sheets and there is minimal piecing on the bigger pieces. Best of all, they all fit so accurately. I adore this dress and I can't wait to sew another.
