Love this pattern! Versatile, fast and comfy to wear. I shorten the dress lenght a bit because I like the dresses to hit just above the knee but that's the only adjustment I've made. Highly recommend it for beginners and experts alike.
This is so easy and fast to make and instructions are soooooo easy to follow.
I absolute loce CKC the patterns are wonderful and my daughter loves the style.
I'm a beginner and this dress was easy to make. Instructions are easy to follow and understand.
I actually just finished making this dress and I thought it was pretty simple. The only thing I wish it had was instructions on how to attach the elastics. For being a "beginner" pattern I think it should have it. I've never worked with elastics before so I had to search how elsewhere.
Also a couple steps are pretty confusing. For example: gathering the skirt and attaching the bodice pieces together(mine didn't line up like the picture).
Overall for being my first dress I really enjoyed it and it came out so cute.
This is a great pattern to start with if you're new to sewing/CKC. It's a straight forward sew with cute results. We get compliments on our Hadleys all of the time!
The pattern worked great for my GD birthday Elsa dress.. So cute...I loved the end results.
Love the options for a dress, shirt, or Maxie in the pattern! Very easy directions to follow even for a beginner!
This is a great pattern. Made for my 2 year old. I found it easy, a great fit and a beautiful end product!
A great pattern, adorable and super easy!
I have this gorgeous pattern in all sizes available! It's my "goto" pattern for a quick summery dress for anyone of any age!
The Hadley was my first CKC pattern, and it's the one that got me hooked! Such an easy sew, and great fit! Highly recommend, even for beginners!
This was my very first pattern that I chose, about a year ago, when I started sewing. I asked for advice on the fb page, and the majority said Hadley as a beginner pattern to try. I tried it and fell instantly in love :-)
I'm not sure why this is rated Intermediate- it could easily be a beginner pattern. It's a quick & easy sew. When it comes to attaching the bodice front & back- trust the instructions! The front piece is wider than the back, but this is how it's supposed to be.
This is one of my favorite patterns! It's great for beginners! It's a quick sew and the dress looks adorable on!!
This dress/top is awesome! I love the way the pattern and instructions are laid out for you. I got stuck on one part, and the ladies helped me out right away. You can always ask them for help, it's great!
This is a very easy and quick sew. So many options. This is one of my go to patterns. Less than an hour start to finish. <3
Super, super fast sew and SO adorable for spring / summer.
Absolutely love this pattern!! It is an easy sew and sooo adorable for summertime and sun
My first CKC Pattern & it was perfect the first time. Ideal for a beginner. Easy to follow step by step instructions with pics, quick to sew and Miss 3 was thrilled. I was so happy with the result I even blogged about it. I have bought another two patterns stay tuned.
Love love love! I can't believe I waited so long to make this! I think I'm addicted! Quick and easy with a gorgeous result!
I bought this dress in two pattern sizes. I wanted to make my nieces matching dress, so I bought the Tween and this size. After purchasing I wanted to make my 20yr old daughter one as well.... The dress sews up quickly, the pattern easy to understand and sizing is very easy to alter. A fast sew go to dress pattern!
This is pretty much a year-round staple for us since we are in Florida. We used this pattern to make 4 dresses for our Disney trip and we were complimented EVERYWHERE we went! This is a SUPER simple and super quick sew. You will not believe how easy, yet adorable the final product is!
Adorable! Fun! Easy! Classic!
This pattern is perfect in a pinch. We get soooooo many compliments on the finished product.
THIS is my go-to tunic that I want paired with the drawer full of Brennas bubble shorts. Very easy instruction. Lots of versatility with 3 length options. Def a must have in your collection.
Quick and easy. I have made 6 for my daughter. A must have for summer.
Extremely easy, fast sew and the finished product is adorable!
Love love love this dress! It's a must for every girl's wardrobe!
This is my go to pattern I have made a lot of these! I love the built in sash!
This dress is so easy to construct and is ADORABLE!!!
I have made this pattern in a Maxi and Dress. I love how this pattern is a Shirt Dress and Maxi so versatile. So simple and easy to make!!
I have made so many dresses and tops from this pattern! I love it! It is a quick and easy sew!! Great for so many occasions!
I made the maxi and it was beautiful!! I like the strap width and found it so fast and easy to follow! I'll be making this in each length for sure!
I LOVE this pattern. It is my favorite to make and very fast and easy. Plus it's the cutest! Now I need to make the leggings to go with it :)
Cute pattern. I made the dress. It turned out adorable. I did have a little trouble when I attached the skirt to the bodice and was confused at first when putting the elastic in the back bodice. After figuring it all out, it turned out perfect!
This is an extremely fun pattern to make! I love it!!!!
