    Bought this for myself but my first make ended up being for a friend -- size 16 view A with view B sleeves and a front opening. The pattern makes up easily and looks great -- enough detail to be fun but constructed well enough to make variations easy. I'll be turning to this often.

    Gelato dress
    Reviewed by (Verified Buyer) on 07/19/2019
    I used this pattern to resurrect a linen dress I had made two years ago and which looked like a sack on me. The fabric was too pretty to discard! Because of the style of the original dress, I had to adjust the bust dart into a seam line from edge to edge. But that worked and made quite a nice feature. Which was especially good as the dart would have needed adjusting otherwise. It points a bit too high up for my figure. I love the neckline and the bias finish. And the pockets were great fun to make (fortunately I had some fabric remnants to cut them out of). The dress is now totally wearable and I have even received compliments when wearing it. I shall certainly be making it again in the near future. With the longer sleeves it can be perfect for the colder months of the year.

    I made the frilled top and have plans for making another in the next few days. True to size and flattering. An easy make even for someone who hates gathering up frills.
