This is a great more than simple but easy to sew dress. I love the flutters and pockets. They are super easy and just add another dimension to the dress. You definitely need this in your pattern stash.
I don't know how I hadn't made this dress until recently. It's adorable and easy to make. But those flutter sleeves make such a statement.
Easy to follow directions, easy to make, comfortable to wear.
I love all the compliments we get on this dress! So simply beautiful
This was my daughter's first mommy- made dress that she fell in love with immediately! It's literally her favorite dress!she wore it over and over! I received sooo many comments on it when she wore it to church too! Not a quick sew, but sooo worth it!
I really loved how this dress turned out! It wasn't to difficult to make and my daughter loves the pockets in it also!
This pattern is so cute and I would love it if there was a dahlia top and a primrose bottom.
I am in LOVE with this pattern! The steps are simple, and easy to follow. The best part is this would be an easy one to use with your remnant, or large scraps! My daughter loves this dress, and I'm already making another!
My daughter loves pockets and mama loves beautiful dresses so this is the best of both worlds. Easy to follow pattern and such a quick sew!
The double ruffles and pretty tie back make this dress special. We made it in a maxi length and it was gorgeous!
I love this pattern! Easy to modify for a different look! I always leave the pockets off, and usually only do one flutter just to save time and it still turns out great! one of my favorites!
I made matching dresses for my niece in this dress. It it so pretty. She loves it.
I've made this without the pockets, but the dress was still adorable. The double flutter is easy to do (especially with a rolled hem on a serger) and is super cute to wear. My daughter loves this one.
I made this dress for one of my nieces. The pattern is easy to follow and the results are stunning! Definitely a dress pattern you need to add to your collection.
one of my go to summer dress patterns!
The pattern instructions are very well written and easy to follow. The dress is beautiful and comes in top, dress or Maxi length, so has many different looks! Love it!
Absolutely adorable, loved by both my girls. Easy to sew, fantastic directions. Love this pattern!
Another hit. This is beautiful in every style (top, dress, and maxi). Fit is perfect because straps can be adjusted.
I had fun sewing this dress. It was like putting together a puzzle, which I also enjoy. I emailed a question about the back of the dress and got a quick reply along with a pic to help answer my question. I love how the dress turned out. I made the dress using three fabrics.
Things I would like to change is the thickness of the straps at the end so the bow would be easier to tie and next time, I would make one a couple inches longer than the other so when I tie the bow, the ends are more the same.
The instructions were very easy to follow. I would like to have had some instructions on ironing seams on the bodice especially those that met with the elastic, but it all came through nicely.
I plan to make more with this pattern.
Love the style of Dahlia! Not my quickest sew but so worth the time to make. Love!
I love everything about this pattern! It's simple, easy to understand, and adorable as a top, dress, or maxi!
Working on my first maxi dahlia now and love!! The attention to detail on the pockets really make this dress so sweet!!!
We love the dahlia at our house. The back of this dress is stunning, and we also made this pattern into a tunic length with ruffled pants, and got SO many compliments on that outfit.
I love this pattern so much. It reminds me of something that I would have worn as a little girl. I had to purchase the doll pattern.
my very first. it was surprisingly simple :)
Sewing the sash on was my least favorite part of making this dress. Super cute results and people always compliment. Remember to put your pockets on while the skirt is flat pre-gather ;)
For my skinny girls I make the dress and it's a tunic the following year! Fit is spot on as usual with ckc
It's so pretty! Love the pockets. Love the various lengths. Such a great pattern!
This dress is little girl perfection! The pockets, the ruffles, the flutters! Everything little girls love!
I love how thereally 3 different styles. Perfect Maxie dress and top is super cute!
This pattern is one of my all-time favorites! Such a stunning dress that gets compliments everywhere we go! Easy to follow instructions too!
I'm in love with dahlia. With 3 options for lenght it makes it easy to decide how short or long you want it. For my girl, I love the maxi lenght. Pockets may seem complicated but they really are not. Trust me you will love this pattern too!
I love this little dress. It's absolutely adorable and such as easy sew. Bug loves it!!!
It is amazing that a dress can look so complicated and be so simple to assemble. Between the ruffles, the scalloped edge, the flutter sleeves, and no need for zippers or buttons, this is one amazing dress!
I made one of these for my daughter last fall and it is my all time favorite pattern! LOVE!
I love this pattern! It is so customizable! Easy to follow instructions!
My daughter feels absolutely beautiful in this dress! And the pockets are just so cute!
Love this pattern. Super fast sew. One of my customers favorites.
love this dress. It's perfect for everyday wear.
Oh how I love this dress!! Those flutter sleeves are the cutest ever!
I love the look of this dress and the sweet flutter straps!
This pattern is my favorite (so far!). It is so versatile and can be done so many ways. I have used it for tunic tops, dresses, maxis, added an apron, used the flutter sleeves and have left them off. The bodice is perfect for detail work and to personalize. Every time I make it it looks different and beautiful. The fit is fabulous and CKC patterns always have the easiest to follow step by step instructions. Anyone can make this dress ... today!
Love the Persnickety and matilda Jane feel of this darling dress! Its actually quite easy to construct. The scallops require patience and attention to detail, but aren't difficult at all.
Pretty easy as a dress and shirt! Love the pockets and straps! We love ruffles!
My daughter loves her dress! We love the pockets and sleeves! Super easy!
Love this pattern! Made one for my daughter & one for a friend's daughter & it was super easy to make!
This is a beautiful dress when put together and leaves a lot of opportunity to create different looks when mixing fabrics. I got stuck in a few places, but I'm a beginner and was still able to work through it. I will be making many more.
I cannot express how much I LOVE this dress! The flutter sleeves are simply to die for. I conquered my shaky hand at buttonholes for the back and they turned out fantastic! Did I mention this dress is amazing? One of my personal favorites for spring & summer!!
this is a must have for any little girls closet whether in the top or dress form it is adorable and easy!
I made my daughter this for the fourth of July. So many people complemented in how fantastic it looked.
This one is so cute! Pockets are such a fun detail and love all the ruffles!
Absolutely love this dress!! So easy to follow instructions!
I thought I had found my favorite dress pattern ever until I purchased this one!! I looooove it!its beautiful, clear instructions, and sizing is TTS!
I love this pattern. I have already made several in different sizes! This is a great pattern for a winter or summer dress in any fabrics you can think of!
As always, easy to follow directions. Cute little pockets and lots of twirl appeal.
I found that as I worked through the pattern that it was confusing and bouncing back and forth from one step to another when some of the steps could have been streamlined and set aside (such as the initial ruffling could have all been in one step). I also thought that I had to read between the lines for several steps. Maybe that is to be expected on an Intermediate level but I just finished a beginning level and found the same thing to be true. I love how the dress turned out though. I do wish more instructions would have been given for sewers using a ruffler.
I love this dress, comes out beautiful and as always the directions are great and easy to follow.
Was a slow going process at fist try, took over 4 hrs. to make the 1st time around .However the second time was much easier and faster. It is a cute little dress every one should give it a try.
I saw the pockets and knew I had to have this pattern. After a few minor bumps I completed 2 dresses and am even more in love with this pattern. It's an instant favorite and a must have for any little girl!
Before sewing the Dahlia Top, I had never sewn anything before. Even though I'm a beginner I had to try this pattern, it's just so cute I couldn't wait until after I had a little experience. I'm glad I didn't wait! The instructions with pictures were easy to follow. My daughter loves her new top and is now waiting for her dress!
Amazing Dress. I used this Pattern for a dress I entered into a Contest and I WON 1st PLACE.. It is a Classic Beauty, pockets for your little ones treasures, The flutter sleeves makes it school appropriate and there are a million things that can be done with this gorgeous pattern.
I LOVE THIS PATTERN SO MUCH!!!
this pattern is gorgeous! the flutter sleeves, the adorable pockets and so many skirt options!
I love this pattern, this dress! It is so sweet, and can be layered when the weather is cooler. Love, love, love the possibilities!!!!!
I fell in love with the the first time a saw a preview for it. Made it the day it was released and will continue to make many more. Love the double flutter and tie in the back!
I love LOVE this pattern! I made my daughter's birthday dress with it and she loved it too!
So easy to follow and of course I modified it because CKC patterns are awesome and so easy to change up. A new favorite for sure!!
This pattern was so easy to follow and it gives you three great lengths! I also LOVE the fun pockets and double flutter sleeves! It is also school appropriate for my little one which is a giant plus!
This is so cute with the double flutter sleeves! It's a great summer dress and I will layer in the fall. There are button holes and rolled hems but other than that it's pretty easy!
This is the cutest pattern. I love all the CKC patterns that I have made so far. Still have more to try.
LOVE this pattern! It is super easy directions to follow! My 6yr old loved the pockets and the twirlability it has!!! Thanks for great patterns!
Very good pattern...lots of rolled hems though so be prepared for a lot of manual labour if you do not have a serger. LOVE the way the strap attach at the back!
Loved this pattern, especially for my older girls because of the elastic back it is easy to adjust the size!
