If frustration and anger could trigger labor, I would have had this baby after trying to make this pattern! It looks simple enough, and it really is for the most part. The tricky part is that the directions leave out a critical photo/drawing of how to pin the neck band to the yoke. UGH! I hate wasting my time. Further complicating matters is the fact that the directions tell you to pin and sew it in the opposite way that I would. As a result, this dress is nowhere near perfect, but it is good enough for yard play. My daughter gave it a test run, and it worked out just fine!
