    This is a lovely skirt pattern and with a little help from Donna came out looking fantastic. Will definitely be making this again..Also the material that came with the kit was perfect.

    Really enjoyed making this pattern. I altered it slightly by adding a little front zip in but otherwise needed no modifications. If you are nervous about trying shirring, you needn’t be, as Donna’s video tutorial holds your hand every step of the way! I will definitely make another one of these at some point…

    This blouse is such a clever design and very straightforward to make up but with stunning stylish results. The instructions that Donna supplies along with her accompanying step by step YouTube video tutorial mean you can make this up with confidence even if you’ve not done a lot of sewing previously. It also covers tops for handling more delicate fabrics. I’d highly recommend this pattern and I’ll be making it up again many times I expect.

    I loved making this coat! I would never have thought I had the ability, but having experienced how clear Donna’s tutorials are on the Vienne dress, I thought I’d give it a try. The construction process is broken down into easily achievable steps and anything tricky is shown and explained really clearly. Donna’s positivity shines through and it feels like sewing with a friend in the room 😁

    This is such a fabulous dress pattern. I’ve made two already and will definitely be making more. I find the elasticated waist seam sits in the perfect place for me and I love that it has pockets too!!! The YouTube sew-along videos are invaluable, helping at every step of the way while also being enjoyable to watch. I highly recommend this pattern. I can’t wait to try the others in the collection!!

    Lovely pattern, get fit, didn’t need to do a FBA which is always good. I only did 7 rows of shirring on sleeves.

    Lovely pattern, easy to follow instructions, as ever with Donna’s patterns.

    I did an adjustment to the sleeve pattern to make them flutter sleeves at my daughters request.

    I will be making one for myself in the gorgeous navy floral fabric when I get time 🙂

    I’ve had so much fun making this. A really great pattern that is a lovely fit. I’ve done some sewing before but have never made clothes. I really loved the video tutorial. It was so clear and reassuring. I’m so chuffed with my skirt, feel very proud I made it, and am now browsing the other patterns on this site for my next project!

    I love my new Vienne dress. It’s a lovely pattern to sew and the final garment is excellent, I know it’s going to be worn a lot! The instructions are very clear and the YouTube video tutorial is really handy if you’re a visual learner. All my thoughts and plenty of pics are on my blog:
