The art style won me over. The game's ok for a time-management style. I found it to be fairly challenging at first but after a few levels you get the hang of it.
It's not something you could play for hours, as it doesn't have much variety; but it is something to keep you or your young ones entertained for an hour or two.

I liked it!
I actually had to look at the title of the game again to be sure I was going to review the right game after reading the other 2 reviews I saw as they didn't seem to resemble the game I have at all. The "star" of the game is a young girl who is a seamstress with some magical devices as well as qualities. A present from her grandmother is stolen and she sets off to find the present. She has 2 mannequins who are key figures in the game also. They get stolen (story line sort of breaks down here as I am still not sure by who or why), as well and she travels to find them. The graphics and music are good in this game. She has to make money so she sews clothes for people who come to her different shops. Things in the different shops get upgraded by you as you go along. As the game progresses you have more and more clients and the magic devices that you acquire from the attic provide things to add to your clothing, such as sashes, lace, ribbons, etc. I thought her sense of humor in the things she says at times was amusing; the inventions she acquires were very different and quite in keeping with the story. By the time you get to the end, trying to keep up with all of her customers, the additions they want to their clothing, and their temperaments (some of them are VERY impatient and will walk out if you don't cater to them) provides a challenge. I have played this game over and over and still enjoy it. I would advise you to play the free trial and make up your own mind about this one.

This game is not very funny nor very long. It is rather linear. You can not really interact. It's a shame, there was potential.

I enjoyed the game, it was fun and you don't have to think about it too hard. Paying attention to the orders that come in help, though. :-) All in all I was satisfied, but it would have been nice if the game was a longer.

Charming and Challenging
I'm not going to go into gameplay detail as the other reviewers have done that very well, but I will say this game is delightful. And that's not something you can say of many games these days. The graphics are gorgeously hand-drawn, it has a period setting and there are no headless zombies hiding in the closet (quite rare, I know).
Yes, the storyline is wacky and the main character does come out with some crazy (and grammatically incorrect) lines but that doesn't really detract from the overall enjoyment for me.
It's also got the perfect level of challenge for me; hard enough to keep you on your toes but easy enough to get "perfect" if you concentrate.
Please please please make more such games - I know they're probably not going to gross as much money as the vampire chicken fetuses but they are dearly loved by those who appreciate beautiful art and charming entertainment!
