This is one of my daughter's favorite dresses. We've gotten year round use out of it by layering in the cooler months. If this dress is clean, it's the one she goes for. The pattern itself if very simple and straight forward. It does however take a bit of time to cut and assemble. This was one of the first things I made for my daughter and I got in a lot of practice stitching straight lines on this skirt and the results were well worth the effort. There is a lot fabric to gather for the skirt and bottom ruffle, but the end result is well worth it.

The patchwork style skirt on this dress is amazing! I mashed it with the Dahlia bodice and the results were stunning!
This dress is stunning!! The directions are easy to follow and well put together. The overall outcome is wonderful and to top it off it reminds my daughter of her late grandmother who made quilts for her (Something I surely can't do!). Thank you for the wonderful pattern and the wonderful memories CKC!!
