I love the gathered bodice. Pattern was easy to follow and very well written like all of them.
As a top, Maxine's can be worn with shorts or a bloomers for warm weather and then layered with Brenda's Bubble T-Shirt or a sweater and Jenna's Ruffle Pants as the seasons change to cooler ones. As a dress, it can easily be fancied up with girly fabrics, fancy shoes, and a beautiful chunky necklace! Use cotton or linens with lace or satin trims and really let your imagination take you away! The sky is the limit, now lets see what YOU can do with it!!

I had a great time putting this dress together and it came out wonderful! Wish I could post a pic of it! Can't wait to try out the other patterns I've bought!
This dress is so sweet! I've made 2 so far and love them both! I'm still working on perfecting my gathering of the bodice, but the pattern is easy to follow and well written
This is one of my favorite patterns right now. So easy and I love the different strap and bow options. Instructions are very easy to follow!
This is simply beautiful! Not to mention, no pattern pieces! You csn dress this up or down just change the fabrics :)
I really like Maxines for the simple construction, but big wow factor with the bow!
Love the way you can make it a simple dress or to wear to a wedding from the fabric that is choose. The top is so pretty and looks difficult but as with all CKC that I have so far(not enough) the instruction as wonderful!
I made this dress in a sweet eyelet, and it is just gorgeous on! Enough detail to be able to be dressy, but simple enough for everyday wear - it all depends on your fabric choice! The instructions were clear, and easy to follow. You need this one!
This was so much fun to make! I made 2— one for St Patty's day and one that turned out to look like a princess/fairy dress! Love both of them and an easy sew!
