Fabric:Cotton - Quilting  [See other projects in this fabric]
Pattern Description: Girl's dress with sleeve and collar options.

Pattern Sizing:I made the size 8 for my tall but slender 9 year old.

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?Sure did.

Were the instructions easy to follow?Very easy.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?This is the second version I have made, but the first with sleeves. The sleeves were very fussy to put together, and far more complicated than they needed to be. But apart from that, it's a grand pattern.

Fabric Used:Cotton quilting.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:None.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?I've made two versions, so it must be good!

Conclusion: Sleeves get a thumbs down, but the rest of the dress is perfect! You can check it out more on my blog, Jorth!
