Love it, but you really should mention that when you cut the neck out, you should reinforce the shoulder seams so it won't come undone. I have some yellow jersey that I am totally going to make one of these to wear around the house.

I just got my first sewing machine Saturday and was looking for something super easy for my first project and I think this will be awesome to make! Plus, I love this style of dress. I just wonder how a jersey material would work? Any hints or tips you can give a beginner who has no idea what she's doing? Lol

This was by far the easiest dress I have ever sewn. I have tried various patterns from this website. The directions are extremely clear and easy to follow! Thank you, Ellon
