I bought this pattern last night to make my daughter (almost 3 months old.. eeeeeeeek!) a couple of summer dresses.
I havent sewed much in a while, was it difficult?

I found this pattern to be very easy to follow.  It's been awhile for me also, jumping back on the sewing wagon but I think they turned out pretty good. 

A hint that I use...don't cut your pattern out.  Instead, buy freezer paper (I can't live without it!) or pattern tracing paper (can get expensive) and use a sharpie or marker to just trace out the pattern pieces for the size you need.  This way, when your daughter out grows the size, you can always make more with the different sizes.  I like freezer paper because on one side it's like paper, but on the other side it has a plastic coat.  With this, you can just iron your pattern pieces right onto your fabric and cut away.  They are much sturdier than the tissue pattern paper too! Good luck!  I cant wait to see them!

Wow that's a great idea with the freezer paper.  I've traced onto tissue paper and such, but it all falls apart and I end up buying another pattern anyhow.  Yay, another use for my HUGE roll of freezer paper!!

oh wow! thanks for the tips! Unfortunately I'd already cut out the pattern (in the largest size and folded over the other sizes, if that makes sense) but will use the freezer paper trick for SURE next time.

That's a good idea too!  I hadn't thought of that.
