    I love this dress pattern! The fit is perfect, looks great on my 3 year old. It also has great hanger appeal. Everyone who sees the dresses I have made loves them, some have even asked about a women’s version. The pattern itself is well written so it’s easy to follow.

    Simple pattern, easy to sew, and makes a great garment. It seems to run a little small. I made a 10 for my daughter (based on measurements), but it fit my 8 year old perfectly. It might have fit the 10 yo, but I think it would have been a little small. It is completely adorable!
