This is a nice pattern. Easy to follow directions and clear pictures. I used quilting cotton instead of knit so I cut my first one a little larger but I didn’t need to. I made the second one ( also with cotton) exactly by the pattern and it was perfect, although I did add a little extra in the shorts. I did lengthen it a little and added puff sleeves because I wanted more of a dress look rather than a tennis outfit. I will definitely be making more of this one.
I enjoyed how quickly this dress goes together. The end result came out really cute and was a perfect fit.
