This pattern is fantastic! I have done it with pockets, rick-rack trim, ruffles, etc. and it always turns out super cute.

Love, Love, Love this dress. So quick and easy to make. DD loves it. The top is a little snug going over her head, but with a placket, it is great!

I thought the pattern was super easy to use but found it to run small as I have with all the patterns I have purchased why I am only giving it a 3 star.

This is a very detailed and easy to follow pattern and the finished dress is very beautiful! I used matching Amy Butler fabric and it looked fantastic. The detail of the fabric flower really makes the dress look unique and professional! I will definitely be making more of these as special gifts.

I made a top for my little girl for the winter and she wore it with skinny jeans and a turtleneck. Then I made a dress for the spring. It was so fun to go trhough my fabric "collection" and use some things I had from when she was a baby.

This is to cute, simple! The only reason I give it 4 stars is because for me the sizing was kind of big.
