This pattern was the best PDF pattern that I have used thus far. All lines matched up perfectly! the instructions were super easy to follow and just as easy to make. I chose the Giselle dress for the Monthly Stitch because this reminds me of my childhood. This dress is definitely a throw-back from the seventies! I mixed the dresses and added another panel to the bottom of this maxi, and my daughter wanted this to touch the ground, that's why it's so long.

I re-purposed a thrift shop denim jumper for the top of this dress. I used the button down from with the buttons and I used the pockets at they were. The floral fabrics were in my stash and it all worked well together,remember it doesn't always have to match!
