Violette Field Threads Tinsley Misses Dress Review

Must have!

VFT pattern never failed me, Tinsley is classic and must have pattern. More pattern for woman, please?

Violette Field Threads Tinsley Misses Dress Review

Quick and easy dress to make

I made this as per pattern (knee length, short sleeves, no pockets)and the finished dress was pleasing on the eye and comfortable to wear. I made it in one day which is exceptionally fast for me

Ok, not great

I found some of the pieces needing to be adjusting (I was a size 6), the back bodice was shorter than the front, for example. I like patterns that don’t need playing with, so probably wouldn’t remake

Sizing is weird

I have had the hardest time starting this project. I want to love it sooo much, but the sizing is so off, and I don't' feel confident about grading between sizes. I made a sample bodice lining in a size two sizes larger than my normal size, and it was still snug. Definitely didn't help my confidence. I haven't picked this project back up, and may not for a long time. Too frustrating.

So disappointed

I printed out both size 18 and 20. The darts don’t line up on either one. Very poorly drafted. I am experienced at sewing and printing out patterns. All settings correct. Dart lines are not same length on these two sizes. Never again. I purchased two patterns which were expensive with the exchange. What a waste of money.

I love the design, but I would prefer that it could be purchased and shipped so that the pattern pieces would be much easier to use.

I looked through the pattern, and it seems easy enough to follow. I enjoyed making the girls version!

I am newer to sewing but I am creative. I love that you teach how to technically sew something so I can take that technique and run with it! I recommend you all to any new sewer because you make it so easy!

Adorable and Easy to Sew

Overall I had no issues. Instructions are very clear and the finished dress is adorable.
