    I made two of these at the same time. Easy to follow instructions, the sizing seems to be on the small side - the size 34 months is a snug fit on my baby grand daughter but I haven't yet tried the size 4 on my other granddaughterr. I liked the finished garment, a classic for sure.

    I'm a beginner sewer, but this was totally do-able with the explanations that came with the pattern. I learned a lot and ended up with a dress and a blouse that I really like for my daughter. I didn't include the center front detail in either (just personal preference), but otherwise followed the pattern exactly. A lot of fun!


    5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 A very adorable dress!, 4/7/2015

    Reviewer: (Goldendale, Washington)

    I made this dress in a size 12 for my granddaughter and it came together very nicely. I chose a busy pattern for the fabric so transferring the markings for the tucks was impossible. So getting the tucks just right was a bit challenging.

    Reviewer: (België)

    I really loved the pattern for the family reunion dress. I think it was very clever i could print in on a A0 scale. I'm from Belgium, and we use other technics (for example, on the pattern, there is never a seam included), so sometimes that was a bit confusing (i should have red the instructions better, because it was explained). My daughter is 4 years old, but her measurements were those of a 2 year old. Maybe that's also different in Belgium; But I'm happy, that means i can use the pattern for a few years longer. I had a little bit of difficulty with the collar, but i made it work. the dress looks really nice!
