Joy's patterns are all very thorough and detailed, with instructions that will please both the novice and experienced seamstress. The instructions are written for finished seams for a lovely result, no serger needed. Of course, the pattern directions can be modified to use a serger as well. Darling details include the lightly gathered halter straps and ruffles galore! The pattern can be purchased with an included applique, or add the lemonade graphics option, or for both, in a package. I embellised the bodice with some pre-done princess and frog appliques from JoAnn's, as well as floral and cupcake buttons. Fabrics used include white Kona cotton, red gingham, and Michael Miller lime dot, all from from Fabric.comhttp://www.Fabric.com. I also added some specialty stitches and grosgrain ribbons in red/white and pink dot.
