“super cute and easy dress to make! perfect for summer”

This ruffle dress sewing tutorial will teach you to make an asymmetrical ruffle dress ranging in size from 6 months-10 years, plus a matching doll size (for 18" dolls). This dress covers a single shoulder in a sweet style. It is a very easy sewing project and perfect for your island girl. The pattern includes multiple options. Make the dress as a straight shift. Add one layer of ruffle to the bottom or two. Tie a ribbon over the exposed shoulder, or not. The choice is yours!

Please note that this tutorial includes one digitally drafted pattern piece and a measurement chart for all cuts that are square or rectangular in shape. This sewing tutorial is perfect for beginners, and the dress is ideal for a day in the park, at the beach, or just because.

Standard sewing notions

Even though this is a simple dress, this pattern is not for the beginner seamstress. It left out some key parts like hemming the top neckline ruffle and was vague in some areas. It was not as detailed and explanatory as most of the patterns that I have purchased. Towards the middle of the pattern I just winged it until the end.

Cute and to make!

I am 11 years old and a beginner in sewing. I took a sewing class and did a project very similar to this but this project was harder than the other. I feel this was not detailed enough for me. For example, the instructions tell you to do a basting stitch but in the corresponding picture it doesn't show the stitch. Definitely for a more advanced sewer.
