I really liked the different options available in this pattern, not only for sleeves and fabric design but also instructions for shirring vs. finishing the neckline and sleeves with elastic casing. There is only one pattern piece in this pattern so I question why the pattern is $8? The cutting measurements for the bodice especially are confusing if you're using a directional print. There needs to be instructions for seam finishes in the directions.

This is only the second dress I have made and I loved it. Clothes have always scared me, but this pattern was so well written and easy to follow that I can't wait to make more. I used elastic instead of shirring and it turned out beautiful.
Demi is fun and easy to put together even for a beginner. I made it without the shirring by using elastic in sleeve and at neck. Love the way it turned out.
This is my favorite take on the peasant dress. The band is a sweet little touch and the double ruffles are my favorite. Can't wait to make more.
Super cute dress, my daughter loved it and as always CKC patterns make it easy to sew. The only thing I did not like was how the band was attached to the bodice but I may have misread the instructions.
