I plan to make this dress as soon as I can buy the fabric to do it. Did you have any advice of where I can buy good fabfic at a decent price?? Thank you, Maria Alonso, from Binghamton, New York

I cannot access the pattern, I am told that the webpage is no longer available.

It looks like the image is temporarily unavailable when you try and open this link. When you scroll down, though, you'll find the instructions :)

I just accessed the pattern with no troubles.

Very easy and breezy.

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 is so pretty! it looks super easy, i can't wait to try!

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

Super cute!! definitely going to make this
