This dress pattern is super cute and so easy (once I stopped over-thinking the placket! ha!
I will say the bulk of the placket did bother my 3 year old @ first, but she soon forgot about it and didn't mess with it after a bit.
I might try one w/o the placket, but I love the look w/ cute buttons.

I'm in agreement with the placket comments already made, and I too omitted it for two of these in different sizes. The dresses turned out super-cute, but they were quite long. It would be helpful to have options for a shorter version and also for making it without the placket. (I'm just too lazy to go to the trouble since I sew with knits to make my life easier!) For example, how much would need to be cut to do a self-binding at the neckline? Also, if using ribbing, what measurements would I use for cutting? I did my own calculations for ribbing, and it worked out fine, but I would feel more secure cutting according to pattern measurements. Getting back to the length:: I wasn't certain about the proportions for shortening, like how much to shorten each piece in order to maintain the basic style which is wonderful. (I'm not good with numbers and calculations!)

I wanted to love this dress as is, but I had to make too many changes to the pattern to give it 5 stars. All in all, the second time through it made a cute dress. The placket directions weren't super clear to me, but I eventually figured it out. More pictures would help! I made the neck binding a bit wider than the pattern called for, brought the dress in some, and scooped the neck a bit in the front. I also used KAM snaps instead of buttons on the placket, which worked great. On the second sewing, this dress took me 2 hours from cut to finished in an 18 month size. My daughter seems happy in it and the length is perfect.

The neck placket was too bulky looking. The second time I made it I didn't use the placket and sewed the neck line all the way up and she has plenty of room for getting it over her head.
