This is a really cute and easy to sew pattern. I had the pleasure of testing this pattern and it went together so quickly and smoothly. The instructions walk you easily through it, I think any beginner could do this one. The color combinations, or all one fabric changes the look of the dress. Make it yours with what you pick.
