Directions were very well written.
Made muslin top and the fit was simple enough to adjust
Quite excited that I could finally have a 'skater dress' that fit me well
So nice to not have to worry about fitting-I love the swishy skirt.
Easy to cut out and fun to sew.
I’ve always avoided dresses with a defined waist until now. The Turner is great, I love the smooth fit, the lined bodice is inspirational the neckline is lovely and lining the bodice is a perfect way to keep the line looking good.
The skirt is floaty and lovely, my concerns about this dress not being right for me wierd body shape is totally unfounded, it sits perfectly on what could be/ should be my waist, hangs beautifully, and swishes enticingly.
I just love it.
I found your Turner Dress pattern to be easy to alter to fit my plus petite size. I have used this bodice to adjust your Montrose top pattern to fit me beautifully. Your full size sleeve fits better then my adjusted sleeve on the Turner dress. I can't wait to sew up the other patterns I have from you. PS thank you for the Curvy Sewing Collective. You and your friends are such an inspiration.
I've only made it once, so far but it's already one of my top 3!! I tweaked it by removing the lining and banding the neckline - the only reason it's not 5 star. I received so many compliments and I can't wait to make it again. Very easy and very flattering. I'd highly recommend!
