I struggled a bit on my first draft of this dress, but Carrie helped me with my fit issues. I have never had a designer reach out and help me after the sale of a pattern. How cool is that?
I made a beautiful dress and it was easy to sew.❤.
This is a great dress. It’s a great cut. It required very little adjustment for fit. The instructions were clear and easy to follow. I love it and plan on making many more.
I have made 6 Turner dresses this spring. I took a great leap of faith with the first one and made the 24 G/H. The only change I made was lengthen the short sleeves and made the neckline higher. From size you can rightly deduce that EVERYTHING I make needs significant alterations, not this pattern—LOVE IT.
Although the Turner dress pattern was easy to make, I chose the wrong style for my body type, however I would try another style.
