Made this for my granddaughters Christmas dress this year as it was a little different. The fit was great and she loved the twirl factor.

I've used this pattern twice to make dresses for my daughter. Make sure you actually measure your child, and don't go by what size they are in traditional clothes. I forgot that all pattern designers have their own sizing ideas, and I made my daughter the size 3 dress. It'll fit her. In 2 or 3 years! My fault on that one. So I then proceeded to measure her, and she fits the size 1-2 for this pattern. No biggie. I just finished sewing the size 1-2, and it came together just as beautifully as the size 3. The only issue I had with both dresses was the collar placement. No matter how well I followed all of the instructions, there was never any way to have it 5/8" from the front and 1" from the back. So I eyeballed it. Looks great. I'll update with a photo of her in the dress next weekend :)

The Alyss Party Dress is gorgeous! I found the instructions straightforward - the photos are really helpful. I sewed my first zip following this pattern. The fit is spot on. If you are looking to make a Twilight Sparkle costume for your daughter, Alyss is perfect. I can't wait to use this pattern again!

A little annoyed by the self-measure-and-cut pattern but the skirt is simple and turns out so adorable. If you are using a bottom weight material I would suggest taking some length off the front and back skirt pieces for a less bunchy gather. I made a khaki one for my daughter's school uniform.
