The cut out and sewing was easy to follow. The shirring part with the elastic did not work no matter how I tried to do this. I had to modify the pattern because it was too big. I gathered the neck and sleeves using the old basting method.

This is such a sweet little dress. The instructions were easy to follow. This was my first shirring project and that is where I spent the majority of my time. Definitely try on a test piece before starting on the dress. But once you get the technique for shirring, the dress itself is very simple to make up. I have a picture, but couldn't figure out how to add it to this review. So I posted it at
