    Very happy with the outcome, easy pattern to follow

    Lovely result, straightforward pattern, not many pieces to cut out, great clear instructions. What's not to like! I particularly liked the ability to select just a specific size to be printed out - definitely made the step of cutting and assembling the PDF pattern more straightforward.

    great dress!

    This is a terrific pattern that has already received lots of use - the top is a great basic, quick to make, and the dress was an instant hit with my 9 year old. And if you have the Liesl and Co Maritime top pattern, it is very easy to adapt this dress pattern for yourself! As always, the pattern is beautifully drafted and the instructions are great.
