My daughter fell for this dress from the picture on the cover of the pattern. It is an easy pattern to construct, but I didn't like the unfinished seams inside and added a lining. That got me into a little trouble. The back closure is just a fabric loop and button with no placket to strengthen the back opening. This isn't the cleanest finish on a dress, but it works. My daughter thinks the dress is great and loves wearing her leggings under it.
Please note, the fabric requirements are for 60" of fabric, which will limit your fabric selection. Plan accordingly. This print is from Fabric Finders.
I did make the ruffles the easy way, using my gathering foot. See below.
