The Sunshine dress is excellent. I plan to have my 8 year old niece use it to learn how to work with patterns and her sewing. I feel the simplicity of it will be great for her beginning level, with supervision of course. And the resulting dresses can be varied and are all cute!

love this pattern!

I have made the dress 2 times. Both are just darling. There are so many ways to vary the look with the pattern and different materials. It is easy also.



Cute and easy pattern. You can see this up in less than a hour and have an adorable dress for your American girl dolls.
