    I really enjoyed sewing this dress for my girlfriend's 2 year old daughter, the design of the dress is awesome and the pattern very easy to use.

    Reviewer: (Utah, USA)

    Such a great pattern! It is a quick sew, and so easy to customize. I have done applique, lace, pom poms, and all views. I have made so many it is almost embarrassing. Highly recommend this one!


    5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 I've made 3!, 7/6/2013

    Reviewer: (AMHERST, NY, United States)

    Yup. Three. Most O + S patterns are clever, and look complicated but aren't. This ingenious little dress is the perfect every day year round pattern. Use heavier cottons for the winter and layer a t shirt underneath. Use lighter voiles and batistes in the summer and voila a flowing summer shift. This one is so ridiculously easy that you can spend all the extra time you want on appliques or any other embellishment. Add to it that it has options as a tunic/shirt and an exterior contrast neck, and it is an amazing very versatile pattern. It is my daughter's favorite dress and it is so so so so so easy.


    1. In the first printing of this pattern, the back-envelope illustration for View A, Back incorrectly showed View B, Back. Refer to the Details tab on this page to see the correct illustration for View A, Back.
