Pattern Review: Simply Jane by Cosette's Closet

 Here's My Final Product:
This Pattern was as the name implies simple, but the instructions really weren't that great.  I chose to make the dress with out a ruffle, because the one on the pattern just looks a little too homemade for me.  I like a handmade look just not a homemade look. You know what I'm trying to say?  Probably just making myself sound like a snot.  Anyway, I finished it from start to finish in an hour and a half, which always makes me happy, but was a little disappointed with some of the measurements. The Button Plaque, for instance, was way smaller than it appears on the pattern cover. It felt a little like she didn't take enough time to test her pattern. I have made her other patterns and like them, but I was slightly disappointed with this particular one. That being said, I'd make another one.  A dress that only take 1 1/2 hours start to finish is my kind of project.

the dress you made is so cute! i prefer it without the ruffle on the bottom too. I totally get what you mean about the difference between hand vs home made, makes sense and I don't think it's snotty at all.

I TOTALLY know what you're saying about homemade vs. handmade! I've said that before and had people look at me like I was crazy, but there's a big difference!
