I have only sewn a handful of times in my life and found this pattern to be super easy to follow. I really enjoyed using it and am already dreaming of making it again, and in the future getting the other patterns!!

The pattern was easy to follow. I had a few mishaps but will definitely make the second one much more quickly.
