I was delighted to find this pattern because there are so few available in both infant and toddler sizes and I have granddaughters 3-1/2 years and 8 mo. I chose to make it in Christmas plaid and found pattern drafting pattern problems. The notches for the sleeve were way out of alignment, which meant I could not align the plaid as I'd hoped. The shoulder length did not match up either. A minor problem: If you set in the sleeve first and then sew the underarm seam, it's very difficult to turn up the bottom of the bodice and hand stitch it to cover the waistline seam. I just serged all the raw edges together. Finally I could not understand the need for a placket in the skirt. I left the selvage and used a wider seam allowance. It folded neatly over the bodice when I sewed the two pieces together. All told I really love the finished dresses and would upload a photo if it was possible.
