I love this dress!
It's so easy to make and the instructions are bang on!
I've made about 5 so far, and definitely plan on making more!

I am planning on using this pattern to make my daughter's flower girl dress for my sister's wedding but in the meantime I used it to make her Halloween costume. The pattern was very easy to follow and even with my not-so-advanced sewing skills, I was able to make a dress in about 2 days. Thanks for a great pattern!

The instructions are easy to follow, and i like how it came with options of with or without sleeves, and also pleated or non pleated bodice. Modified the sleeves part a bit as my fabric has a head panel so i used it as the sleeves as well. Ive just completed the dress early this morning and it looks great! Perhaps maybe add a tutorial on how to integrate a diy sash instead of a ribbon? thatd be awesome! Thanks for the great sharing of knowledge! I posted it on FB and so many of my friends asked me to make one for their daughters!

Such a cute pattern and I really like that it comes with two bodice options and so many sizes. I made a small error in attaching the lining but that was all my fault. I'm looking forward to making many more of these dresses!

The Savannah really does sew up looking like a store-bought dress. I bought this pattern because I needed a replacement for a dress I bought at Target. If you sew for a little girl you need to own this pattern. I've only made 1 but it turned out so good that this is going to be a go-to dress from here on out. The sizing seems spot on, directions are clear and everything sewed up smoothly.

This is a pretty simple, straight forward pattern/tutorial and the outcome was beautiful! I did a fully lined skirt option and had a little trouble with attaching the lining to the bodice properly, but that very well could have been my own issues (had to have hubby help me figure it out, haha!). I absolutely love the pattern and would sew it again in a heartbeat!

This is another great pattern from Amy! The pleats are so sweet and add interest and texture to the garment without having to change colors or fabrics. It creates a really professional look. Perfect for a springy Easter dress! I do have to say, I tried to "cheat" on this one and didn't line the bodice....and would not recommend doing that haha. Take a lesson from me on this one, follow the directions, and you'll be fine! :) I'd like to try a winter version of this soon!

What a sweet little dress! I consider myself a just-above-beginner sewer and nail this one! I made two matching dresses for my girls dedications at church and they are so lovely! I made my own piping and put that between the two pieces instead of a sach / ribbon. They look great! Pattern was easy to follow and comes with good photos to explain each step. I can highly recommend this one.

I made the plain front version size 8 for my very slender and tall granddaughter and it fit like she wanted it to. I only added length to it because of her heighth. I was very happy how it turn out. She has worn it several times now :)

I love how easy this dress was to put together.That you can use special fabrics and make something really dressy for holidays, and simple cottons for an everyday dress. The instructions for the pleating were easy to understand.

Loved this dress with the pleats and lace for Easter. With a plain bodice and different fabric, it can be every day, so it is perfect for any occasion.

I made this dress for my daughter for Easter. It couldn't have been a bigger hit! I participated in the sew along and saw a ton of different materials used for this pattern. Some were casual and some were pretty dressy, it's amazing how much you can do! I can't wait to make more!

This pattern is so easy to follow. I love the picture detail for creating the pleated bodice.

I just love this pattern. All pieces lined up perfectly and everything just fell into place exactly as it should. I love the look of the pleats and the fit is perfect.
