    I loved this pattern. The fit was spot on for my 6 year old granddaughter. I’ve made the sleeveless option and the 3/4 sleeve. She loves them both. She didn’t think she wanted pockets but now that she has them, she loves them.

    I made the first dress ever that actually fit my granddaughter well! She is very slim and the directions for how to choose the correct size pattern were a revelation to me! Love, love, love the slim options!!! The directions on altering the pattern were also helpful. I was a bit surprised that there were no cutting layouts included with the pattern and recommend you update the pattern to include that. I also love, love, love the “layers” option (print only the sizes you want and not any you don’t want). That is a terrific feature. Great pattern!!!
    FYI. I had directions printed and bound at UPS store for an acceptable price. Since I plan to make serveral more versions of this dress, the cost was worth it to me.
    Please make similar pattern girl’s dress made with woven fabric, with lots of variation, and the slim option, of course 🙂

    I adore the fit of this dress!!! that comfy casual fit is sooo perfect for my 7yr old! A very fast sew and a fun pattern to make with a lot of room to get creative!

    I made this as her 1st day of school dress to really show off some great fabric ( )

    and I made it into a jigglypuff dress for her birthday! (Posted in the facebook group)
