I cannot believe I have had this and just now making it. This is a perfect pattern. I paired it with the Lucy pants and they both were so quick and easy. I understood every detail perfectly, which is not always the case when I am sewing late at night. I used the top length in a size 2 and no band. I want every single one of your patterns that I have not already bought. I can see making many more of these little dress/tops in the future. I love it.
This pattern is wonderful & versatle. You can make an everyday wear version or a dressy version. It’s a pattern I always come back to. It’s a customer favorite in my shop.
This sewed up nicely. I appreciate having a pattern that is only measurements for when I don’t want to take the time to print, tape, cut out pattern pieces! I agree that it is a very versatile pattern. I had no issues with it and it fit my daughter perfectly.

This is such a quick, darling pattern… I love the flat front which is so easy to embellish, or use wild fabric on…the instructions are very clear, and can be followed be new and seasoned seamstresses alike.
