I love everything about the Laird dress. From the flutter sleeves to the color blocking on the skirt to the variety of lengths, it is love. Definitely recommending this pattern to EVERYONE.
Laird’s Ruffle Collar Dress is a simple sew with a lot of wow factor! The fitted bodice features elastic casings for a comfortable and easy fit. The flutter collar is trimmed in bias for a fabulous accent, which then tie through loops in the back bodice. Laird’s has the perfect skirt for showcasing your favorite fabrics and accents. The bottom band of this dress is folded- so no hemming! This dress will quickly become your go-to for Spring and Summer!

I made two of these at a time. I love that I was able to only print the sizes I needed. The only complaint I had was the construction of the layers of the skirt. They didn't quite go together evenly so I had a pucker, but when I make it again, I'll sew the three layers together for the front and then the back and then connect front and back making sure to match up that center insert. The instructions were clear and the dress is adorable on my two granddaughters!
