Sophie's Pleasant Day Sun Dress

I love this little dress. It goes together easily and instructions are clear and easy to follow and the fit is perfect. I have made several and I know I will make more.

Absolutely love this pattern! I've made four dresses from it and plan on making more. What I like about it is the contrast can be made from a scrap of fabric in my stash (you know, that stash we all have!) and the dress from a larger piece. What a cute addition to my dolls' summer wardrobe.
