Pattern is easy to follow. I absolutely love the final result and so do my girls. Make sure you tape the pattern together before cutting. I was a bit eager and had to reprint. I like the flexibility with the pattern too. You could leave the sleeves off and have a nice tank that has a finished edge. I would recommend.
My daughter is wearing Captian America Dress right now. I made the sash red and white and the dress blue, then added a star applique to the chest and it looks amazing. Easy to follow directions for an adorable result.
I'm planning to use this pattern to make my daughters coordinating Christmas dresses too.
Just the sweetest dress. S easy to follow directions
Beautiful dress. Pattern took a little time to put together but with circle skirt I understand why. Instructions were clear and easy to follow.
Wonderful dress, easy patterna and great instructions.
This is a great pattern. It came together easily. The instructions were clear. My girls love the fully lined skirt and bodice. My oldest loves that the dress can have a sash without having a big bow in the back as she always complains about sitting down with a big bow. I may borrow the sash part for some other dresses to finish them off in the future.
This is a great, classic style. I used horsehair braid to hem and changed the buttons to an invisible zipper. I didn't really follow the instructions, but they seemed clearly written when I read through them quickly.
really like, easy to follow instructions for the most part.
made it for my granddaughter
