I really love this pattern. I’m not a beginner so it made really quickly; if you are a beginner the instructions are very clear and easy to follow. It fit great with no adjustments needed. Will definitely be making another.
I’m not an experienced sewer and made my first Turner in 4 hours with no problems. I made the 20 G and it fitted well with no adjustments (which to be honest I don’t really know how to do). I’m delighted with the result and see many more Turners in my future!
I’ve never sewn a garment before, this was my first one. It was easy to sew and very flattering!
The Turner dress is the 2nd item I have made in knit fabric...ever! The instructions were so easy to follow, the pattern is well drafted and I can't believe how happy I am with my finished dress! It is so floaty and feminine. I can't wait to make more
The fit is fantastic. Arms, shoulders, everywhere. Anyone who sews can understand how excited I was to have a wearable item after first try. Only change I made ahead was lengthen the torso by an inch, and I am glad I did. Once completed, the dress had a bad ripple in the front, mainly because I am peanut shaped- maybe from making it longer, or because my belly does not round as much at the front? A quick seam took care of that and the second dress I simply made the front bodice less curved which was perfect.
I now have my new favorite item in my wardrobe.
