Pattern Review- Wrap Dress from Stitch Magazine

I am not a magazine person.  They just seem like they cost a lot for what they are. . . however, a magazine with lots of patterns in it?  Definitely worth the money!

Stitch Magazine is one that is on my list once in a while.

Last spring's edition was one that I purchased.  Mostly for this dress:

Pattern Format:  Sewing intuctions available in the Spring 2010 Stitch Magazine.  The pattern pieces can be downloaded and printed  here.

Sizes Included:  Sizing is a little confusing on this one.  It says it is size 3-4, but the pattern pieces have a small, medium and large sizing.  I would say it is about a 2, 4 and 6, maybe?

What I liked about the pattern:  It is a DARLING dress!  Sewing instructions were clear.

Anything I would change:  I wish the sizing were a little more clear.  Also, if you can't see it in the pictures, the pattern has all princess seams.  That means a LOT of pieces and a LOT of work for a little girl's dress.  You feel pretty darn proud of yourself when you get done, but during the process it is kind of a challenge.  (And requires making a LOT of narrow bias tape-- even more if you are making FOUR dresses!)
