Simple Ruffle Dress

I have not had a chance to try this pattern out yet. After reading over the directions; which seem to be clearly written, I'm sure the dress will turn out beautiful!


Such a cute dress!

I made this dress last week for my granddaughter's doll. It came out so nicely that I just had to post a review. It was a dream to sew, and looks fabulous on both new Samantha and old Felicity (my model). Enjoy!
