I haven't made this yet, but I know from previous purchases that the instructions and end results will be awesome! I love all of the patterns I have purchased from CKC !
Esther’s Ruched Top and Dress is an easy and versatile pattern that you will want to make over and over again! The bodice is designed for use with stretch knit fabrics, but the skirt (s) can be made of either woven or knit fabric. Esther features a gorgeous gathered neckline that can be left alone as is, or can be embellished with any sewing trim of your choice. It also boasts with two skirts, an underskirt and an overskirt for extra fullness and twirl. If you are looking for a simple project, you can make it with just the main skirt. As an added bonus, there are two lengths to choose from, dress or as a top length. Esther also features our first ever ruched sleeve for that extra elegant touch to your top or dress. Complete the look with a beautiful ribbon tie and you will have a staple item that your girl will absolutely love!

I have only been sewing for two years, every since my granddaughter was born but CKC Kids makes it so easy and things are explained so simply. Even if you are new to sewing you can follow these simple directions. Plus CKC gives you variety with each pattern and patterns can be printed as many times as you wish. My granddaughter is only 2 yrs old but I can print these patterns over and over for years to come as she grows. Thanks CKC!
