I did make this at the end of last summer, but it was so large (size 8) I put it away for this spring.
A few notes about this dress if you have a cutie that wants a patchwork dress:
1. It doesn't take a few scraps to make this dress, but almost 6 yards of fabric.
2. It runs VERY large.
3. The directions for putting together the patchwork skirt are "interesting."
4. It doesn't have a placket in the back. The back bodice is sewn to the skirt. Since it is so large, I doubt anyone will have problems with trying to get it onto a little body.
