This dress is easy to make and very versatile. Directions are easy to understand and pattern pieces are a comfortable size to work with (no real small pieces). I am working on 2 more of these dresses using Christmas colors, one casual the other more formal looking.
I loved this pattern so much I made 3 dresses with it. The directions were easy to follow and the fit is perfect! I highly recommend this one!!!
