A few testimonials:

"This tutorial was great! The dress is so fun to make, and the end result is so professional and fancy looking. The directions were incredibly easy to follow and there were clear, easy to see pictures for each step. You can truly customize this dress to any little princess using so many different fabrics and trims. I will be making these in different colors for my little girls to use for dress up!"

"This tutorial was amazingly detailed and provided great instruction through text, pictures, and links! I love the no pattern format which gives the seamstress the option to make any size over and over again! Will definitely use Tenderfeet Stitches patterns again!"

"I found this pattern to be very user friendly. It has several pictures to help with any confusion with the wording, or instructions. When I had even the slightest hesitation or question, all I had to do was look at the pictures. I would recommend this pattern to anyone."
