This dress has several options. The pattern has a crossover bodice and comes with directions for making a dress with cute pleats on the side or a more streamlined look without the pleats. There is even an option for a lower neckline and modesty panel that is perfect for nursing mothers. And there are options for three different sleeve lengths - short, 3/4, or long sleeves. So this pattern can take you through every season of the year.
There is also a pattern for a wrap style top. The top can be a basic wrap top or one with an asymmetrical drape in the front. So many options!
Love Notions patterns come with a layer feature so that you can print only your size. The pattern is easy to print and put together. And the tutorial is designed for easy viewing on a tablet, complete with hyperlinks to each part of the tutorial, so that you can save printing out the directions.
It was a fun experience getting to test this pattern. So interesting to see part of the designer's process in getting the pattern ready for release. I know that she has been working hard to ensure that this dress is a perfect fit for everyone.
