Excellent Awesome instructions!  April 9, 2013

Thank you so much for the very easy to follow pattern! I needed to make a dress for a friends little girl. Her mommy is returning from deployment and I wanted her to have a special dress to wear to pick her up from the airport. She helped pick out the fabric and the dress came out very cute!
