Pattern Description:
This short-sleeved, dropped-waist dress comes in two versions. View A features a nautically inspired collar detail. View B has gentle gathers at the front and a simple yoke detail which is perfect for embellishment. The elasticized waist in both views is comfortable and features a cute bow detail.

Pattern Sizing: 6m to 4

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

Were the instructions easy to follow? yes. i must admit i sewed the casing on wrong first and decided i should check out the instructions. oops.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? i like that this has some 'style' and is different from a lot of the little girl dress patterns that to me all start looking the same. no dislikes.

Fabric Used: cotton

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: i left off the collar, the bow and the sleeves. i put a little flower button where the bow was to be sewed. i used self bias strips for the arm holes.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? i've made several of them.

Conclusion: a fun, cute little dress that can be changed over and over by fabric and pattern piece choices.
