Cutest little dress, and my baby used it as a tunic when she got too tall for the dress. :) Very quick and easy to sew, and easy to follow directions.

I have made several of these and I am moving to the next size. Love how quick these come together. I gave it a four since I still seem to have trouble around the arm pits but that may be user error. :-)

Lovely pattern and such a quick and easy dress to put together. I love that you can have different fabric sleeves, with or without the elastic. I've also added an inch for a variation to make them a little longer.

I love this pattern, bought it several months ago, made different sized dresses for my baby. Now I'm going to buy the next larger size of pattern for her as she grows. I plan to shir the necklines instead of using encased elastic, it gives a cuter ruffly look to the dress.

I really like this little dress! Super easy instructions and it whips up very quickly. I have already made 3 today and it is simple enough that it lends itself very well to modifications and personalization. Awesome pattern!
