Average Some problems  July 11, 2013

I had a some problems with certain parts of this pattern. On my daughter's dress, the skirt is not on the right side because usually, measurements are written length by width and here, it was not the case... As my fabric had a sense, I had to make the dress longer and less wide. I like the result anyway, and my daughter could run easily. I see this pattern had been updated, but I didn't take a look at the new version yet. So my review concerns the old version!

Good Easy and Cute  July 16, 2012

This is a fun little dress to make. I made 1 size bigger than normal clothing sizes. The instructions are a little too wordy for an experienced seamstress, but probably easy for beginners. There are some spelling/grammar mistakes as well. But, overall, it was a good pattern.
