This was one of the cutest dresses, and most fun making it! Instructions were clear, and easy to follow. My 1 year old grand daughter at the time looked so darling wearing it 2 Easters ago. And also made another one for her 1st birthday party. Very cute, and received multiple comliments on this dress! Thank you!

Beautiful results! My daughter is in a size 8 now so I'm sad because this was one of her favorite dresses. I may have to get it back out and make some alterations to the pattern

LOVE this pattern. Well written and fits great. The only thing I wish was different was that it came in bigger sizes :).

My daughter loves this dress. I love the criss cross bodice. It adds a little something to it without being overpowering. The swwet ruffles at the bottom are cute. Instructions were very clear. I love the pics along the way.

This is a great pattern with lots of helpful photos. I'm a fairly new sewer and I really surprised myself making this dress which turned out beautifully! I originally only planned on doing a single ruffle at the bottom but went ahead and did the double and I love how it looks. My daughter also loves the dress and just wants to twirl and twirl. My confidence was definitely boosted after making this dress and it's encouraged me to try more difficult patterns.
