Tie Dress

This pattern was fantastic, it got easier and faster each time I made it. And I made it 5 times for 5 granddaughters- I could probably make them blindfolded! Excellent instructions.

Such a fast sew! Less than 45 min from start to finish, and it’s reversible so basically 2 tops in 45 minutes! It has such a cute Aline and the ties at the top are a fun addition. I will definitely be making a ton of these in the future!

Great dress

This is a quick and easy sew. From cut to finish about 35 minutes. Will definitely be sewing more of these dresses.

Quick & Easy

I'm very slow and often intimidated when it comes to sewing. However, Martha's is very quick and easy. I opted to do the non-reversable. I spent maybe an hour from start to finish. I did on plain color fabric. Once completed, I decided to embroidery a design to customize. I plan to make a few more and try with knit fabric.
