I've sewn Celeste a few times, usually with the simpler option and love how it comes out. Both the top and dress versions fit well and I love how the petticoat really makes the dress pop. I love the boatneck neckline!

love this pattern!!

This is one of my all time favorite patterns! I have even modified it by just using the bodice with a little length to use as a top. Love this pattern!! ❤️

options galore

This pattern is jam packed with options!! Sleeves, ruffles, bodice options!! Really helps me to design a look all our own without the work of mashing patterns or drafting changes. Very classy and school dress code approved!

my go to dress

This is my go to dress to make due to the many options it offers. Before this dress I had never added sleeves on a dress but I was confident with it because of the easy to read and follow instructions. My daughter now has a sleeveless and short sleeve version. Absolutely love this pattern.
