Oh my goodness this is a wonderful pattern! I made my daughter's Easter dress using this 3 years ago and the fit was roomy enough that she was able to wear it that summer and the one after that as well! I love the layers and the possibilities...and pairing it with some matching capris. Too cute!

i love this pattern, very easy to follow, great pictured instructions, has a fantastic twirl factor and can be made in heaps of different variations. My girls absolutely love the dresses i have made from this. Fantastic job :D

This dress is the cutest thing! I loved how it came together. I think the instructions at the beginning about cutting the pattern out could have been more clear. The pattern is provided for the top and sleeves, but the skirt you come up with on your own. When I finally "got it" then it was a breeze to finish up the dress. I love the different things you can do with the sleeves, neckline, and how many layers of ruffles you add. It's a very versatile dress!

This was one of my very first purchases on here, a few years back, when I was still in the learning process. This pattern is so wonderfully written that I often referred back to the instructions to apply toward a different pattern. The step by step instructions and photos were so easy to follow. I HIGHLY recommend this for sewers of all levels, but especially for beginners, as you will be so surprised at what you are capable of via this wonderfully written pattern!

I LOVE this pattern, but so far there hasn't been a pattern yet that I have purchased from Dainty Designs that I haven't fell in love with!
I have had more people than I can count stop me and ask me where I got this outfit!
Can't wait to make another one!

Thank you so much for such a beautiful design! The instructions for gathering using the elastic thread is the BEST tip I have ever read. It made making the ruffles so much easier! I will post pictures once I get her Xmas outfit completed.
