Great instructions. I'd say it's more for intermediate sewers than beginners. The ribbons were a little tough for me to I had to find just the right tool to do the job, once I did, it was fine. I also treated myself to a ruffler foot for the skirt and it really helped!

This was fun to make and Lexxi loved wearing it for last Fall. Can't wait to make another one! The directions were great. Don't let this one intimidate you!
