    This dress looks really smart on you, particularly with the red belt. I had seen the pattern, but the picture wasn’t very clear, and I didn’t realise it had the pleated neckline detail, which seems to be very ‘in’. Thanks for making me aware of it – I’m definitely going to make it for my daughter.

    Well done. It is a really nice fit on you. I love the neckline and the added touch of the red belt.

    I’ve passed this pattern so many times, ummed and aahhed over it, and never decided to get it. But this dress is beautiful – I’m just waiting for the email with instructions from sewingpatterns.com!
