I mean it's nice enough, but nothing I couldn't manage with my laurel or any other shift pattern I own. What do you guys think?

It's something I wish I had for when I first began sewing. It's a clever idea to label the pattern marking for beginners, as it took me MONTHS until I discovered that 1 notch means front, and 2 notches means back. I also like how the instructions are in color, it makes it even more appealing for someone who hasn't sewn before. It is something I would purchase to coax friends into sewing, but not so sure I'd use myself.

I think it's a nice pattern and 'catchy' to the eye...I really like it. However, I personally couldn't justify buying that pattern when I'm sure I have something similiar or exactly the same in the stash at home (seriously I have hundreds of patterns). If it were a $1 pattern I couldn't help myself, LOL.

I do agree though that it would be great for beginners, they're printed on nice thick paper, and appears to have wonderful instructions.

Coco looks like a very nice pattern with great instructions for beginners. It's designed for stable knits and has no bust darts which makes it different from the laurel or other basic shift pattern. I love boatneck tops. This is tempting.

It's a cute pattern. And I think it will catch the eye of many. But I am one that just doesn't have that many issues sewing the Big 4, they're plentiful and cheap, and there aren't many patterns I'm willing to pay $20 for. Sorry :/

And I think that it's something that can easily be made from an existing TNT knit tee. BUT that presumes you have experience so again...I could see this being awesome for a brand new beginner sewer...or someone wanting to foray into knits for the first time.

I think it's a cute dress. And I'm sure there's several similar from the Big 4, but I'm more interested in buying from independent companies these days.

Yeah...$12-13 for a very simple pdf pattern isn't quite up my alley either.

I think the silhouette is nice, the neckline is very pleasant and the sleeves are just right. However, the pockets look like a sloppy afterthought. They make this dress look very home made.

I agree, the patch pockets aren't working at all for me.
