There are options for one or two ties and one or two buttons for the neck closure - both equally cute (I tried all of the options!)
The dress looks great on - lovely on its own for warm days, and also works wonderfully with some layering when it's a bit chillier!
As always Allisons instructions are great, and you might even learn some new techniques you haven't tried before!
The upper part of the dress is lined, but this can easily be extended all the way to the hemline to make a reversible dress as one of the other testers did.
The pattern is available here and for some more inspiration from the other testers creations, look here
I highly recommend this pattern, as well as all the others from E+M Patterns!
