This was a super simple dress to make. I love the way It came together and I can't wait to make more for the summer. This dress is also super cute for layering.

This dress/top looks intimidating but let me tell you it's not. It was quick to sew and easy to understand. Love Tie Dye Diva's patterns.

The directions were great. I'm a beginner and they were very easy to understand and included some useful tips I hadn't heard. The end result was a dress my daughter (and everyone else) loved and couldn't believe I made. Thanks!

• Main fabric, for bodice & skirt: light to midweight cotton fabric, 44” wide: 1 yard for
size 2T; 1.5 yard for all larger sizes. This is the most you’ll need for dress length in a
non-directional print.
• Contrasting fabric, for bodice liner & bow: 5/8 yard
• Optional: Contrasting fabric for ruffle: 1/2 yard
