Sizes included: 12-18 months, 18-24 months, 2, 3, 4 and 5.

Level: confident beginner. Buttonholing is recommended, though complete instructions are included for creating the dress with no buttonholes.

This dress is fantastic! The pattern/instructions are more intermediate though. It is understood that you are very familiar with sewing techniques and various gathering techniques as well as button holes. Over all a wonderfully well written pattern! Love the dress!
