I bought this pattern a few years ago with the intention of making it. I finally got around to making it after I realized my daughter was growing out of the sizes. I had to add an inch to the top bodice width and it fit her. I wished it came in tween sizes as this is a very cute and versatile pattern. I ended up making a straight skirt dress since I didn't have enough to make a gathered skirt. It turned out very cute and unique.

Super pattern. I made 4 of them the first week I had the pattern. Comes together quickly and looks great. I made my own bias tape so I could have bias that matched the dress. There is a seam in the center back of the skirt so it is important to match prints and plaids so you might need a bit of extra fabric for this. I did add two buttons to the waistband so it was more secure and kept the ribbons too because it is cute.

I made the dress, but shortened it quite a bit, and left off the ruffle. I found that it didn't fit well across the front and gaped open at the cross-over. I'm not sure I will make this again.

This pattern is super awesome, because I was able to custom make a dress for my friend's daughter who can't ever fit right in store bought clothes. She is super skinny, but tall. The bodice is made separate from the skirt, so I was able to make the bodice smaller in size and match it up to the length skirt she needed, which was a larger size. It fit her perfectly! Thanks for a great pattern! Super easy to understand, by the way.

Made four of these in two days for my four grand-daughters with their mother. I think this is a great pattern to teach young girls how to sew. The color coding is very nice to differentiate sizes. It's a snap to cut out with scissors and a rotary cutting set. This dress pattern is so versatile. I only sewed the ruffles up to the shoulder seam on one side because I didn't want the ruffles tucked under the other side and adding bulk. It was easy to sew the ruffle into the shoulder seam. I learned to move the ties back at least an inch so the dress could be tied tighter and more modestly. The girls love their dresses.

LOVE LOVE LOVE This pattern! We still haven't found the perfect fit for my daughter as she has trouble keeping the ties closed, and the materials I've chosen (apparel fabrics - 100% cotton) have resulted in heavy dresses that get very hot for her. Keep in mind HOW MUCH fabric there is in the end with this dress.

I've made this several times and in several sizes. For some reason, the armholes come out too small, but I'm sure it's something I'm doing wrong. Don't let that discourage you because it's a very cute and versatile dress!

I am so pleased with this pattern. I had purchasd a few other e-patterns around the same time and this one was by far the BEST. The clear and organized format made this simple for even a beginner like myself. I appreciated the glossary, charts, and formatting. It is even COLOR CODED by size! The step by step illustrated instructions were very clear in comparison to the "stream of conscious", broadstroke style of other patterns. Thank you for making it possible for a beginner to make such a NON-"dum-dum" style. The dress and top look fantastic on my girls and received several complements. I will most certainly be using this pattern again!
