I was going to go shopping after christmas for some easy patterns to learn to follow a pattern on now I'm feeling even more daunted at the idea.  Undecided How can I tell the easy easy from the not so easy?

If there are tons of pieces to put together its not so "easy".  a t-shirt or an a-line skirt are truly easy, especially if you put elastic in the skirt.

I agree with the "not so easy" allegation, but I'm pleased with the result. See my version here; http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=182492.0

i made that dress also, very cute! i found it to be quite easy, the only problem i had was trying to understand some of the instructions for the straps, but other than that it is probably one of the only dresses i've made that i will actually wear!! i'll see if i can post a pic later!

I thought it was pretty easy.  I left a much larger opening for the vertical back straps to connect with the neck straps, which allowed me to adjust the fit easily before stitching them in permanently.  I found that I had to cut a good 3 inches or so off the straps, since no patterns are intended for someone as short as I am.

I made this pattern last summer.  All went well until I had to attach the band to the dress; I didn't find the instructions very clear and ended up kind of winging it.  However, I loved the completed dress and I might make another one this summer.
