I love this dress. I have two of them so far and they have turned out perfect. Such a pretty style that lets you use lots of different fabrics to create a on-of-a-kind dress.

Very easy to follow! I just finished one for my 4yo for Easter. She loves it. I have a small kid, wearing commercial sizes 18-24 months and I went with the size 3 top and the measurements for a size 4 skirt piece. It's a bit baggy but it is comfy and she loves it!

I made this dress a couple of weeks ago. It turned out great and I've already planned to make a couple more of them. The directions were easy to follow. It is for my niece and I haven't tried it on her yet. I won't cut out the others that I have planned until I can get her to try this one on. Turned out super cute though!

I love this dress. I shortened it a little and made it into a top. I made it during nap time and I still have time to spare. Not sure about fit yet, but it looks like it will be a little big.

I made one of these dresses for my daughter, a size 6, and it turned out very well! Unlike the previous reviewer, I found the top to be very true to size. The pattern was well-written, with all steps covered. Have no fear trying out this beautiful gem! My little girl loves the ruffled "wings," too.

I made three of these dresses for my granddaughters and they turned out darling. HOWEVER, the top pieces are much smaller than they should be. I made two size 4 and one size 6 (these little girls are quite thin and are just barely in store bought size 4 and 6) and the chest, neck and arm holes were all too small. So small infact that they can't wear them. I will make more of these dresses, they are darling, but make sure you cut the top pieces at least two sizes bigger than you normally would.
