Lovely dress. It looks very nice on the "model". However, as a beginner sewist, I would definitely not rate this easy or beginner. This dress needs more advanced understanding of how to read a pattern, understanding of fabric direction, and understanding fit. While the video is great, I still feel like this is above and beyond easy. Thank you for the lovely design. I hope to be able to tackle this is a few months down the road, when my skills are more solid.

This is a lovely dress, however I would rate the pattern as being for an advanced beginner. If you plan to attempt this dress and, like me, you are reasonably new to sewing, please watch the video as well as reading the instructions. The written instructions are quite basic but the video does expound upon those. I would certainly recommend using a solid colour for your first attempt at this dress, rather than patterns which need to be matched up.

Love it. I could have this same pattern in many different fabric designs. Great way to increase my summer wardrobe! Would long sleeves be a good look with heavier fabric - for a winter dress?

Absolutely. I often make clothes with different materials. Just not too heavy, Jersey can be an option also. I always lengthen my short sleeves. I sometimes find some old pattern I don't use and steal the long sleeve pattern piece and substitute for the short one. You may want to get one of Nancy Zieman's sewing book from the library. She explains everything about making dresses. Have fun.

I love this fabric where did you purchase it? Or would you know the manufacturer, so that I can research it. Lovely dress! I can't wait to make several for spring and summer.

Hancock's is a good fabric online store
