Toddler A-line Pleated Dress

What are you most proud of? It came out just the way I imagined it would. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Iron and pin 5 pleats the full length of the fabric, then sew the bodice part of the pleats down, then cut out the front using the pattern.

Q&A with A.A.

marieta.g6970597 asked:
How do I get the pattern for free if I am online?
A.A. answered:
On my screen, to the left side there is a picture of a blue dress with orange text reading "A-line dress with Peter pan collar". This is the link to the pattern I used. Click on it, then click the orange "Download Digital Pattern" button on the right. You will need to open the PDF file, set your printer to "No scaling/100%" and print it out, tape together, then cut out. I didn't follow the designer's instructions precisely, I pleated my fabric and then cut out the pattern from the pleated panel. That's the fabulous thing about a nice basic pattern like this - you can make it in so many ways! Good luck!
