Additional Notes

This PDF pattern includes all pattern pieces and instructions with illustrations.

This is a beautiful pattern, but there are just a few things that made the construction process difficult. The collar I think was the main thing that many people (I've learned) have struggled with. I didn't stay stitch, but I heard from others that stay stitching didn't help much. Just pack some extra patience when you're doing the collar and don't beat yourself up if it gets a little bunchy! I still plan on wearing this dress a ton, and will hopefully make another in the future.
