I sewed this dress all by myself!
I did everything myself with my mom only helping over the phone. Okay, my mom just happened to be here to help me when the time came to sew the hem (thank goodness). But everything else is my own work. I think this is a great pattern for anyone wanting to learn to sew and learn to do lots of techniques. It's certainly no simple pajama pants project. But if you have done pajama pants and want a new challenge, I highly recommend Butterick B5315. It has a collar, darts, back yoke and pleat, front button and side zipper closing, pleated skirt and belt with buckle. The hardest part for me was putting in the sleeves. I had to do that lots of times before I got it to look okay. But I got LOTS of compliments at church today!
