This pattern was so perfect to tape together, quick to cut out and quicker to stitch up. One of THEE quickest patterns I've made. My 12yr old granddaughter is so very picky. She tried on this dress and said its so comfy and perfect. She has ordered one in all black. I love the pattern so much I came back and ordered the girls sizes for my business. Note: pattern calls for 3/8" seams. My machine was being picky with the fabric. I increased to 1/2" and was perfect. If you have a picky machine consider this before cutting pattern out so you can adjust and add a little extra seam allowance.
