The instructions are easy to follow and the sun dress made up easy and is beautiful
Overall a great pattern. Loved the included sizes on the rectangle pieces, this made using a rotary cutter and ruler so easy. I made the short version today, which from cutting it out to completely finished took about 2 hours. I really liked the 2 options for the back elastic, I used the single 1/4 inch option. Thanks for the great design.
This pattern is simple and beautifully drafted. Many variations are available.
