Great Pattern! I made 3 of these. The pattern is well written and easy to follow. Pictures are clear and the dress is adorable.

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!!

Nice pattern, easy to make

I like this pattern. Next time I'll make the back a little less wide/gathered, but that's just me... it is perfectly fine as is.

Long overdue review for an awesome dress

I'm going to apologize to Chris for not writing this review sooner but I did really enjoy making this dress. My daughter who works in a nice clothing store even said it looked very on trend with some of the dresses coming in to their store. You can make it plain and more classic or you can really make it dressy with bows and as cute as you want. Very easy and as always with LUB, the instructions and fit are both great!

LoveU Bunches Polka Dot Party Dress

This is an absolute fabulous pattern. It fits the dolls perfectly and because of the flat A-line front you can use this feature to showcase your fabric or add embellishments. Very easy to make and I am thinking of trying my hand at adding some little puff sleeves. I'm very, very happy. Adrienne.
