    Such a great sew! The dress looks great and is super flattering, the pockets are a fab addition too. The instructions along with the tutorial video really made sewing the dress a breeze even on the tricky parts. I will definitely be using the hemming method on future projects – what a game changer! Donna offered great customer service too when I was unable to download my pattern. Great company all round and I would highly recommend!

    What a fabulous pattern. Only three pieces and a lovely raglan sleeve with shirred cuffs. Great hour long YouTube video that takes you step by step through the pattern. Will definitely be making more!

    Fabulous wardrobe staple. Easy to follow instructions with a brilliant step by step tutorial on YouTube. As a fairly new sewist, I was able to build on skills already learnt and learn new things, giving me the confidence to move forward. Will definitely try another pattern. Thank you.

    I am in love with this skirt! I love how it fits lovely around the waist and hips and then flares out so nicely with the gathers. The instructions are really clear so it’s a great pattern for all levels (I’m a beginner) and it’s a make that will not take much of your time so even better! I can’t wait to make another one

    I’m not a massive skirt wearer as they tend to twizzle around on me and drive me crackers. However I gave the Florence skirt a go as I thought if it was made for my measurements then the twizzle may not happen. I can confirm no twizzle occurs!
    A lovely pattern to put together. Instructions are clear and well written. It’s the perfect skirt to dress up or down and is ideal for many occasions. Excellent work Size Me!

    This is a great little skirt. I wanted a billowing tiered skirt but can’t take all that extra volume. This has a flattering fit around the waist and hips with a nice swoosh and billow at mid thigh. It fits true to size and the YouTube instructions are reallly helpful. I’d consider myself quite an experienced sewist but this is the best invisible zip insertion I’ve achieved. I wouldn’t hesitate to make more of these. You can see my Florence skirt on instagram at Hackknitsew

    I ordered the fabric and notions from SizeMe and downloaded the pattern. I would class myself as an advanced beginner sewer. So the instructions an videos are really helpful for me. Also choosing the right fabric is is sometimes a struggle so being able to buy the fabric and notions that are perfect for the pattern is really helpful too. I love my trousers and can’t wait to wear them out. I also made the Florence blouse to go with them and I’m really pleased with the results

    Love this dress. It’s a lovely sew and I learned a couple of new techniques. Donna’s sew along video is fabulous and you can dip in and out for help where you need it. The gently elasticated waist is very flattering as are the elbow length sleeves. I’m looking forward to making more Vienne dresses. Must be a good pattern if you want to make more as soon as you finish the last one

    Love this blouse!!! It’s so straightforward to put together and the great tutorial is just like having Donna in the room helping you along! It’s such a flattering fit and the darts on the shoulders make the sleeves fit perfectly. I’ve been wearing mine non stop and have already started a second. I can see this becoming a real tried and true pattern with lots of hacking potential now that I have found it to be such a good fit.

    I bought the pdf version of this pattern and got an A0 print version. I found the combination of video and printed instructions were really useful and even though I’ve been sewing for many years, there were some fantastic tips which I’ll use in my future sewing
    I’ve used a quilt cover to create my dress and I love the comfortable style of the Vienne dress. Although it looks a complicated design, the way you can play and rewind the video helps you build up the confidence to make this dress. It has pockets which all dresses should. I’m planning to create another version as well with different fabric
