    Enjoyable sew, comfy dress

    The written instructions, videos and blog support made it so easy. I’ve taught myself to see as a hobby and thought this dress might be to much of a challenge but I’m glad I tried. I love the results. I was able to lengthen, add piping and change to a plain front with ease. It’s the first time I had done that with any pattern and I didn’t feel lost or confused at any stage. The dress is super comfy and versatile.

    I sewed this dress as part of a birthday outfit for my friend's daughter and I really love how it turnt out. I am a beginner sewist, but the instructions were great to help me finish a stunning little dress that will work for all kinds of occasions. Love the extra big pockets, too! I didn't encounter any trouble throughout the sewing process. Thank you!

    So lovely!

    This really is a lovely pattern, easy to follow and producing a beautiful dress. I’ve made one, but have designs on two more in the next month, I think it will become a staple of my kiddo’s closet.

    Love!

    Such a good pattern. I had a few dress patterns but I had given up as they never quite were right. I have made one and have more cut out. Comfy and looks great!

    Beautiful fit, clear instructions

    I am a newbie to sewing wovens. But this pattern was easy for me to follow, and the fit was spot on with necessary grading (which was fortunate as I didn't make a toile). I appreciated the video for steps where I was unsure.
    My version was with waist elastic and ties in linen.

    The fable dress

    Twig &Tale give you very clear instructions and measurements for this dress. If you follow their advice and make a toile first you won’t be disappointed. I’m looking forward to making the next one, one size down with a full bodice lining. It’s very comfortable, and I love the pockets

    Fable dress review

    I am just finishing my first child-sized Fable dress. I made it out of a tablecloth. I made the lines version. It has been fun and easy to make. I'm very pleased with it.
