Pattern was free for helping test.
I started seeing the Hanami dress and top on StraightGrain and it's facebook page, and loved it, so when I saw the call for testers, I signed right up. I was so excited when I got the email asking me to test.
I love this pattern. My favorite part is the crossed back. I don't know why, but I just think it is beautiful. And it looks so sweet with the flutter sleeves.
The instructions were easy to follow and I love that there are so many options. You can make a dress or a top with a flounce, there are two different sleeve options, two back options, and you can add a collar with the zipper back option if you'd like.
I sewed it up as a dress, with the flutter sleeves and crossed back, in a white fabric with peach flowers, which may not have been the most practical option, but I sure love how it looks. And the inevitable dirt we got on it from being outside came out with a good scrubbing. This time at least.

Disclosure: I was given the pattern free of charge to test and review. All opinions are my own.
