|Front of the dress in progress|
The pattern really didn't get easier as I continued to work with it. I kept backtracking and rereading the instructions, but I still had difficulties with the collar and finishing the lining with the button panel on the inside.
This may be considered one of my first big flops. I don't want to deem the dress useless though and will find a way to work with it. But the pattern was a big disappointment.
