First time pattern user

Although I have had some basic sewing experience, I had never before used a sewing pattern let alone made such a detailed dress. Loved the clear instructions, and the photos were a life saver! There was still a bit of googling, unpicking and resewing but in the end I successfully made two adorable dresses for my two daughters so I'm pretty stoked!

Very happy with my end product

I was very excited to try this dress, and was very satisfied with the end product. I found it quite technically demanding, but was able to navigate my way through the dress construction with the help of thorough instructions, which included very good images. My constructive criticism for this pattern includes the following two points: 1. It does not come in layers options, which is a mild inconvenience as most other pattern companies now do this. I feel that if violette field threads are going to continue to avoid using layers, then the pattern lines should be colour co-ordinated (they are currently all black) for easier cutting out of the pattern. 2. I noticed that the 1 inch reference box only appeared on the first pattern page I printed. This is usually perfect, however this pattern piece was the optional flutter sleeve, and the reference box would be much better placed on the same sheet as one of the bodice pieces (it will avoid unnecessary waste of paper for people choosing not to use the flutter sleeve). Following this purchase I look forward to ordering more patterns from VFT in the future.

Love it!

I pretty much only buy VFT patterns and this is probably my favorite so far. So much twirl! I thought the buttons all the way down the back would be a challenge but it was so easy! (Maybe easier than having to do a placket)

Great pattern

Sizing is a little off. Luckily I made your Isobel last year for Easter and knew it ran small. Making 3 this year so I asked parents to compare their child to the measurements in the pattern. Also, if large once I get to try the dresses on them, I can always move the buttons. Is there somewhere I can share pictures of the Isobel? Turned out great!

Oaklyn Top and Dress

The Oaklyn is a beautiful dress pattern and easy to sew. I love the scoop back and the ruffles on the sleeves. There is one thing that concerns me, there seems to be a discrepancy in the measurements of the skirt top and dress from the measurement chart versus the printed out version. The measurement chart shows the skirt piece longer and wider than the printed out version. I checked the 1 inch scale and it was correct, so not sure why that is?? But it is a lovely pattern I think it's my new favorite.
