Polka Dot Party Dress

I loved this dress. It looks modern with a straight-line front, but also feminine with a twirly skirt at the back. Very sweet - I’ve made two already. The pattern is easy to work with and provides an excellent fit. Don’t be like me and rush through the pattern instructions at the beginning. It took me a while to work out the paper pattern had to be joined in two places before cutting.

Cute Dress!

This is an easy dress to sew and just love the back gathered skirt. I chose to make mine just a tad smaller/less gathers and really like how it turned out

Polka dots

I too have had this pattern for awhile. I tend to stockpile patterns and when I find the perfect fabric, I'll use the pattern. I love this little dress. It does fits perfectly. I made two dresses with the side bows. TOO CUTE!!
