I love this dress! The instructions are easy, the design is great. I'm not very much a dress person and I've made a few of these, I like it that much!
I am very wary of buying curvy patterns for myself as they usually run too wide and have no shape. But this pattern really worked for me, especially the find your fit section of the pattern. After a few simple calculations I realised that I needed to make a 26w not the size 30w I was planning on and as you can see it fits really well. This pattern is a winner and will make a statement in any fabric xx
I was afraid of trying this style but now I'm loving it :)! It is so trendy and super cute! Can't wait to make a matching dress for my toddler <3. Oh, and pockets... Pockets!!
I really enjoyed making this super quick dress! Might I recommend that these would be awesome PJs? I used my muslin for pajamas and they're super comfy. Also, IT HAS POCKETS. I love the incredibly specific directions and fitting guide, especially.
I really like this dress - comfy and wonderful to wear :) Not the last time that I use a pattern from Mamma can do it.
Love this!!! The fit calculator is the best way to determine what type of fit you want for your dress with your choice of fabric. Love my classic dress!
Great pattern to go through all seasons. Easy to follow instructions with lots of options. A great go to dress. Can wait to see more.
Genius, the Adalynn Dress has included in the pattern a Perfect Fit Worksheet. I have never seen anything like it before. The worksheet takes into account two issues and results in a perfect solution to the fitting struggle we all face. First it gives three options to achieve your personal desired fit; Classic, Semi-Fitted and Fitted styles. Secondly it takes into account the fabric stretch. We are often told to "size up" or "size down" depending on the stretch factor of our fabric. If your fabric is 120% stretch or 30% stretch does not matter, the worksheet will get you to your desired style and tell you how much to size up/down. Wowzers, no more guessing, I love it. Quick sew and stylish too, so many reasons to try the Adalynn Swing Dress for yourself.
This dress has definitely exceeded my expectations! I expected it to be super comfortable, which it is, but what really surprised me was how FABULOUS it makes me feel! It is so flattering! Make sure to use the fit guide to get the perfect fit based on your fabric choice. I will be making many more!
Perfect swing dress for any season! It would be great with or without leggings, so it’s very versatile. Highly recommend! Very quick sew!
This dress is love! As a mama to four little ones, I’m all about cute comfort. I love that I can pick my fit using the included fit calculator page to get the fit / look I’m going for with my measurements and the specific fabric I’m using. Not only will you end up with a great fit, you’ll likely learn more about sewing and fit! Quick sew, boost of confidence to wear.... I’ll be making many more (and mommy & me sets to match my 5 month old!!!)
Love this pattern. It is so versatile and you can choose if you want it more fitted or fuller. The instructions are amazing and the video links are so helpful. The fact that they have marks on the patterns pieces to help with alignment is so nice and helpful. Super easy to sew. I will definitely be making more from their patterns.
I can not say enough good things about this dress. The instructions are clear and well-written (watch that neckline binding video!!), the pattern was well drafted, and the fit was spot on. Oh, did I mention pockets? We all know pockets make everything better. Be sure to follow the fit worksheet and you're sure to love the final results. Happy sewing!
Love the Adalynn! It is so nice to get such a perfect custom fit with the sizing calculations, no more guess work. It flows beautifully and pockets!! What more can you need?! Beautiful fabric and a little time, and you will be in love too!
Wauw! When you’re talking about wearing a comfortable dress while looking stunning...don’t look any further and go buy this lovely dress! It is a quick sew and you can where this design all year round due to the short an long sleeves option. I chose it to be extra girly and made mine with a cute ruffle: love it!
I am I love with this dress! It is roomy and comfy, but looks beautiful on! I almost feel like I am cheating at dressing up! I have only been sewing for a few months and this is a crazy easy sew! By the time I made my second dress from start to finish it took me only a little over an hour to complete including cutting fabric! This is one of those patterns you make multiples! I have 2 done and 3 more fabrics laid out to cut more already!!! You will love this one!!!
I absolutely love this dress (I already made 2 and that doesn't happen very often). You have a lot of options : with or without ruffled hem, pockets, different length of the sleeves. It has a loose fit, which I adore. But if you want it more fitted, it's all included in the instructions which are very well written. It's an easy quick sew. If you have made one, you definitely want more.
This was a super easy sew! I am short (5’0”), and I did not adjust for my height so if you were taller, you may need to add a little length. I did have to shorten the sleeves! I love that you can choose how fitted you want the dress to be - I am wearing semi-fitted in my photo! Easy sew, very comfortable! I also think it would look nice with a belt :)
I really adore this pattern! This was my first ever sew for myself and it was pretty simple and quick! I love the size ranges and would highly recommend using the fit sheet to get the perfect fit!! I love that Ill be able to have Mommy and Me outfits!
This pattern was also very easy to follow - explained so well!!
You guys or should I say gals, this is probably the easiest dress you will ever sew for yourself! You got the front and back pieces the sleeves and the neck band THAT'S IT! Just 5 pieces to cut and sew and with in a few hours (if you are a slow sewer like I am) or less you have your self the most comfortable thing that will ever touch your body! I have made two of the Adalynn dress so far and plan to make more. I also bought both the baby (NB-24 M) and the girls (2T -16) sizes so I can make mommy and me dresses for my daughter. She is 15 months right now! I bought extra fabric so I could make her one when I made my first and then I loved it so much I had to make another one for myself. I will make hers eventually haha. Oh I almost forgot inside the tutorial there is the perfect fit guide which allows you to customize how your dress will fit biased on how much stretch the fabric you chose has. Its amazing! You can choose the classic swing fit, the simi fitted, or the fitted. So really it's like you are getting 3 patterns for the price of one. Buy this pattern you will not be disappointed!
Love this comfy dress. Being 5’8” I needed to lengthen, but even without adding a pair of shorts, Capri or long leggings and it’s perfect. Bonus I can make my daughter the same dress. So many sizes. Yet simple and comfortable. Huge win with this pattern all around.
I love this dress. The best part is the fit sheet, so much easier than having to work out whether to size up/down or grade.
I love the neckline as well, I usually feel I have to wear something underneath but this sits at a really nice place.
I made myself a dress to match my granddaughters 'dresses,it is super comfortable and I love it. Have plans to make another one.
I absolutely love this dress pattern! I love that it can be worn in both summer and winter depending on sleeve length!
Super easy to follow and the end results are amazing.
Be sure to use the wonderful handy instructions to get your prefect fit. If you just print per your size it will be very loose, which it is meant to be. I prefer a more fitted top so used the handy measurements and it was just right! Such an easy and FAST sew. Sure to be a prefect pattern to add to any wardrobe.
The pattern is very well written with step by step instructions, hints and pictures to help you along the way. I love that there are so many options that make this whole range of dresses so versatile! If you want a perfect Mom and Me set, look no further! Whip up a few of these in different patterns and you'll never have to worry about what to wear! This dress is a timeless classic, so comfortable and so much fun!
If you were on the fence about getting this pattern, you came to the right review! I LOVE this whole line of dress patterns. I love that I can make one to fit me perfectly and then make one for my daughter and it fits her perfectly too! There will be a whole section in my closet for this Adalynn Dress! The fabric isn't coming fast enough for me to sew all the Adalynn's that I *need* :)
