I finished the facings with bias binding and added a tag for fun. The instructions are both good and thorough, but the techniques used are not advanced, so this would be a good beginner pattern.
Summer is a short season here, so I think it will last until fall. Truthfully, she's only worn it once as a sundress. The other wearings have also required leggings and a cardigan. The pattern is designed as a sundress, but it could make an awfully cute jumper, too (given a bit more ease). I'm sure I'll be revisiting this pattern again!
