It was a little tricky to get the sides at the correct length and I only pricked my daughter with pins once...okay twice. But she loves it, especially the way it balloons out when she twirls. I did have to buy the royal blue fabric for the bodice, but it was worth it. Her only request was to use a pink button next time, because she loves pink.
The Izzy Top pattern is very straight forward and a breeze to sew. This would be a great project for anyone from beginners to more advanced and it allows for customization. Mine ended up being a tunic length, but I think this would also be an adorable dress. My favorite parts are the curved bodice and the single button closure in the back. Buttons stress me out. Definitely check it out along with her other free patterns. Oh yeah, did I mention it was free! She went through all the work of pattern grading and testing and who knows what else to offer this to the sewing community for free. That's amazing!
