Mary, this is so cute. I made the dress and shorts about 3 years ago (before I found pattern review). It was the 3rd thing I had made for dd. It was easy except I had a hard time getting the straps the right length and didn't get them in quite right. I would recommend it to newbies though, if they don't mind the buttonholes! Just measure the strap length carefully before you sew them in!

I have this in my pattern stash, and haven't made it up yet. Now I have the incentive to sew it, because yours turned out so nicely, and you rated it easy to sew! Thanks for the review. :)

Another lovely creation. I love this dress, I just hope dd isn't too broad across the chest for the pattern now. Thansk for the review.

Cute dress. You did a very nice job of matching the stripes.
