Rated 4 out of 5 by Mary15 from Elegant! I made this dress out of a beautiful blue taffeta. My sewing tutor helped (I'm only 15). The dress has a great finished look. It was really hard to understand at some points. The skirt pieces, for example, show the printing for the top of the skirt to help place the pleats. The length and width of each piece of the skirt need to be measured. Simplicity apparently wanted to save pattern paper. At the bottom, instead of ruffles, I put two layers of the trim I put on the sleeves and collar. I then added bows like I did on the sleeves. It seemed to be a lot easier than the ruffles.
