Let’s talk about pattern details really quick:
- Size ranges from 2T-6
- Option for single skirt or double skirt
- Sleeve flounces
- Back ribbon tie so no zips or buttons
- Detailed illustrations for each step
My niece is a little so we did a size 2T for her, and she’s all about anything girly so I went with a cream underskirt and a pretty floral that I found at JoAnn’s. It was perfectly darling for this dress. We also did the double skirt option because I loved the look of it in the illustrations.
The pattern is rated as an intermediate level pattern, and I agree with that rating. Some of the techniques used in the construction, HOWEVER, if an adventurous beginner wanted to tackle this pattern, I do think that it can be done. And if you hit a speed bump, there are a lot of ladies on the chit chat group that would be able to help you through it.
Construction is actually lot easier than it looks when the dress is done. I love that part because it looks like it was so hard make, but Linda makes the dress construction simple and easy. I also love that there are options for a single skirt and a double skirt so that this dress can easily be made for everyday wear or for dressier occasions.
