This dress was very easy to assemble. I laid the lining pattern over the sewn swirls to make sure I placed the collar correctly. Take care not to stretch the bias curves. I plan on making several more - great for using up scraps.

Not so simple

This is a very cute pattern but I have not been able to finish it. I cannot get the front yoke to fit properly. Any suggestions or pictures would be greatly appreciated! Thanks
