    Great, fun make

    I had a lot of fun sewing this dress as a gift. Instructions were overall easy to follow and the dress turned out adorable. I will definitely make it again

    Helsinki dress pattern

    The clearest instructions ever for a pattern. Downloading the pdf pattern and printing it was easy. Really pleased with the end result and expect to make several more versions of this for my granddaughter.

    Celia Williams
    Sleeveless Helsinki

    I made the sleeveless version of Helsinki in double gauze and lined the bodice with fine cotton lawn and popper fastenings on the back.
    The pattern was straightforward and the tutorial video and extra video for lining the bodice were very useful.
    Am very pleased with the result.

    pretty top/dress - sizing on the small size

    This is a pretty pattern, but as I found for the SINTRA top, if you don't know what you are doing, the instructions are not very clear or helpful. Positioning off the pockets of the prettiest version (IMHO) the black and white check dress, are not included in the english version. Also skirt looks more voluminous than the other versions. I made a top instead of a dress with a shorter frilly bottom edge. It's pretty but size 2years is just right for my averaged sized 20 month old. I suggest to size up especially if you are using a thicker fabric!
