    Great pattern - even for a novice
    Reviewed by (Verified Buyer) on 09/10/2020
    I am brand new to sewing. The Belgravia dress was my second ever sewing pattern in my adult life (right after the Oliver & S Bedtime Story PJs). I followed the directions carefully using a jersey knit fabric. Before I started, I had no idea that knits could be difficult to sew. I used a straight stitch for the whole project, gently stretching the fabric as I went as indicated in the directions. It turned out really well and I had no trouble with the fabric or sewing machine. The dress is comfortable and stylish. It's also very easy to blend sizes. This pattern really helped build my confidence and I'm now pursuing more complicated projects.

    Sophisticated Look with Easy Sewing
    Reviewed by (Verified Buyer) on 06/08/2020
    I love this pattern. I had tried on a RTW dress similar to this and had been looking for a similar pattern. The Belgravia dress hit all the marks. The look is sophisticated and the sewing is easy. I made the first dress in a cotton knit. I'm going to try a stretch velvet for my next dress for a party look.

    Fabulous fit, interesting design
    Reviewed by (Verified Buyer) on 05/18/2020
    What a great pattern! It came together super fast, with an interesting design and good fit. I eliminated the front slit, instead widening the skirt to more of an a-line. I will definitely make this again!
