    Cute pattern
    Reviewed by (Verified Buyer) on 06/19/2016
    I made this dress for a friend's daughter and am making a larger size now. I'm in between the 1 and 2 scissor skill level, so a pretty beginner sewer still. I found the instructions very clear and appreciated all of the details that make the dress look so professional. My friend found that the pattern runs a little small - I sewed the 18-24 month size for her daughter's birthday and she outgrew it before she turned 18 months, despite just starting to fit in to commercial 18 month clothes right at 18 months.

    Hello,
    Sorry, I can't good write English.
    I like this dress. One of my blogger friends has sewn it some times and she's excited about all your patterns.
    I trust in her opinion and hope I'll find time to sew it for my grandchild.

    I am making this dress out of Cinderberry's Maya mermaid fabric, with pink piping, for my two granddaughters. They are so excited to be able to wear these to the beach (as is their mom and ME!).

    Lovely adaptable patteern

    I really enjoyed using this pattern and my three granddaughters are really enjoying wearing their new dresses. It's a style that lends itself easily to 2 co-ordinating fabrics as different panels can be cut in matching fabrics or the skirt can be in s contrasting fabric. It was also useful to learn how to do pockets and good practice for button holes. Learn as you sew and experiment a little.

    Super pattern
    Reviewed by on 05/08/2015
    The instructions on this were so easy to follow, I was able to make this dress easily in just a few sittings and it looks amazing. I learned how to do princess seams and pockets for the first time. I really recommend this pattern, and my daughter loves her finished dress. The only slight thing I would change next time I make the dress is the length - it is a little short on my daughter, but she prefers to wear her dresses with leggings anyway.

    It's a beatiful and easy to sew dress, I've already sewn 2 of them! The only point could be that it's quite a strech model, and if youre girl is not thin, you should go for a bigger size and shorten the bodice part (easy!)! Thanks O+S! I had a great time and my girl loves them!!
