I just LOVE how this dress turned out! I think it will be much easier for me to make if I need to do it again, I read and re-read the tutorial a few times. I am one of those people that needs to understand WHY I am doing a certain part and how it works for the overall project. I used The Cottage Home's Party Dress Tutorial. She gives you patterns, but I needed a smaller bodice so I did got a butterick pattern and shrunk her measurements for the skirt and sash too. I am crossing my fingers that this fits my niece! If you have any questions about the tutorial she is pretty quick at responding or you can ask me.
