Wendy is a classic vintage-style dress you will absolutely fall in love with. Designed for woven fabrics, this pattern features endless options. Wendy features a simple bodice with optional peter-pan collar. Trim the collar with piping or crochet lace for a special look. This pattern offers a full coverage back that buttons (or snaps) up the back. Choose from sleeveless, short, 3/4, and long with or with out optional cuffs. The skirt is a full gathered skirt with a deep hem and optional inseam pockets. As the perfect finishing touch there is an optional skinny belt with belt loops to keep it in place. This dress is great for everyday play or dress it up with satin and sequins for a special occasion.

While I like the end result, several aspects of this pattern were lacking. The pattern pieces could really benefit from including markings. What could have been a quick project became laborious in having to measure and mark fabric during construction in many steps. Also, if the directions are printed and one isn't following along on a screen, the images are often too small to be useful in showing steps. In several places the directions were lacking in describing what was required making it necessary to make modifications to get a good result (i.e at the end where the gathers could be easily covered by turning the lining and enclosing them -which I did)
Additionally, in the Tips and Notes section at the beginning of the instructions, it mentions a pleated version. There isn't one described or shown in the instructions.
