Will you use this pattern again?: Maybe. There are a lot of pieces to cut on this dress. It was pretty labor intensive, but it really makes a quality garment. It is fully lined and wears easily.
What do you love most about it?: The pocket inset!! It is a darling addition to the dress that sets it apart from others I’ve sewn. I also adore the ruffled collar. I thought it might bother her by sweeping her face, but the way it is constructed, that doesn’t happen.
