Pattern Description: This is a girls dress pattern. I sewed Dress "A".

Pattern Sizing: Sizes 3-6.

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

Were the instructions easy to follow?Very easy

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I loved that the instructions were very clear and easy to follow. This was my first completed sewing project and I felt encouraged to sew more after sewing it. I review this dress in greater detail on my blog, with more pictures on

Fabric Used:Cotton fabric with a seahorse pattern from Hancock Fabrics Store.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: The pattern suggests lace trim for the front of the dress but I used ribbon instead.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes, I am already sewing version "B" of the dress.

Conclusion: This was a great dress that was easy to sew and I would highly recommend it.

Wow, for a first project that's fabulous - I'd have worried about getting the ribbons so straight.
