I wouldn't recommend this pattern for beginners since the instructions are definitely put together for someone that has experience with sewing garments. I struggled a little with finishing the seams because there are no instructions for that, and the construction can be somewhat confusing. Also, I'm not sure why they didn't include a pocket option on this dress. It would have been pretty easy to add to the existing design. I may make that adjustment in the future.
This is mostly finished, but I'm still in the process of tacking down the collar and facings, and I am working up the energy to make a decision on the hem. Any suggestions?
