I love loose knit dresses in the summer, so hopefully I can make 2 or 3 of these!

Looks great on you, especially the dress. It's always good to see patterns that flatter a curvy figure. Need more of those. :)

Looks great! I made the dress years ago and it was maxi length on me (also 5'2") so I was very happy when maxi dresses came in fashion. Thanks for reminding me about this pattern!

Love the blue one. Thanks for the detailed review. Even if I never sew this, as a beginner I can see what you mean by the placement of where you shorten. You may have saved me a future error.

Looks great on you. I have made this pattern once as a dress and twice as tops. Likely will use it again when I start sewing for next summer. Glad that you liked this pattern

The top was cute, but the dress is much more flattering on you

Michelle, thanks for reviewing! I love the finished product! I just cut this up in a muslin myself; however, I think some of my instructions got chopped off and I'm confused by some of the pieces. Would you mind PMing me so we can compare notes?

Nice job. Thanks for the review and in particular the details about shortening (and what not to do :) ) because I'm sure I'll need to shorten the pattern too.

It looks really good on you. I especially like the neckline.
