This was such a fun , beautiful little dress to make. Extremely simple but with so many varies to make. I made it in a blue knit, adding the lace at the top of the bodice and then did the overlay in a sheer dotted swiss. My grandaughter LOVED it.

Fantastic fit. Easy and quick!

This pattern really is wonderful. The fit it achieves is flattering. It's also super quick to sew up. I consider myself a perpetual beginner with a bit of anxiety with sewing knits and I found this pattern easy to be successful. I love the variety in looks that can be achieved simply by making a different fabric selection. I've sewn 8 of them already. I have never sewn that many of anything! The results are so quick and satisfying that I keep churning them out!
