    Want to make this dress for my granddaughter for my husbands aunts 100 birthday this coming summer. Love all your patterns.

    Reviewer: (Henderson, Nevada, United States)

    You have excellent styles and great instructions! Can't get lost with your measurements and details.

    Reviewer: (PA, uSA)

    The directions in this pattern were very well written. Reasons were given for why you did things, consequently you learned new techniques! Dress turned out beautiful. I am looking forward to working with other Oliver+S patterns

    The directions were great. If you really follow them, you will have a very well-made dress. The styles are so cute on this website. They have extra style.

    Reviewer: (* Other, Portugal)

    I can't rave enough about this dress: You can actually make it formal or casual depending on the fabrics you pick (and the blouse version is just as versatile). There’s not much I can say about this pattern, that hasn’t been said before by many others (and myself): it has a lovely shape and although it can’t be rated as a “fast sewing” it’s definitely worth the time. As with all Oliver+S instructions every step is clearly explained and the minute the pintucks are set, the dress is almost finished. Both the dress and the blouse version are extremely pleasant to sew and you do end-up with a very professional looking piece of clothing. http://sisforsewing.wordpress.com/2014/08/06/family-reunion-blues/
