**When you go to print your pattern pages, be sure in the "print" menu that the box that says, "Shrink oversizes pages to paper size" is NOT checked. This box is found in your print menu. You want the pages to print to full size and scale, so again, make sure this box is NOT checked. Also make sure the box that says "auto rotate and center pages" is also NOT checked.

If you have Adobe Reader 7.0, you will see a "page scaling" section in your print menu. When you print the PDF document you will need to select "None" under "Page Scaling" in printing preferences.

I made this top for my daughter for an upcoming trip to Disney. Even my Mom couldn't believe how cute it turned out. She was amazed I did the shirring all by myself. Thank you so much for this great e-book. I can't wait to try the dress!

I love this pattern! It takes a little extra time to make, but the results are SO worth the effort. I've made two dressed for our up coming Disney trip. So far, I can hardly get my daughter to take them off! My mom was also impressed when I showed her the dresses. She was amazed I did it myself! Thank you for such a great pattern!

I made my daughter one of these dresses for the circus, it was perfect! As always Dainty Designs books are top notch with lots of pictures to follow. I could see people pointing at her and smiling as they saw her, definately a showstopper. I hope to make another soon.

I've just finished making this dress and I must say, I'm absolutely delighted with it! I did find it a little more challenging than Dainty Designs' other patterns but I still managed it nevertheless. I can't believe I made it, it looks so professional!

I loved this pattern. Very cute and so many different looks possible. I made the bottom layer longer so it would be a longer dress. It is absolutely adorable and I plan to make another for my little one! Everyone who sees this dress is amazed that I made it since I am a beginner sewer.
