I chose this pattern for it's ultimate twirling powers. Ella is really gravitating towards tiered skirts and this was a winner. It was very easy to follow and I made it in a pretty short amount of time. The only problem is that it uses a lot of fabric, since the ruffled tiers are cut out of only two pieces. The size ran HUGE. Poor Ella had at least 1&1/2 extra inches of fabric on each side of her torso. I wish I had measured her and gone by that instead of the sizes, but by the time I realized how large it ran it was too late to re-cut.
Skill Level: Easy
Direction Clarity: Very good.
True to Size: Size numbers ran very large.
Changes Made: I added a wide sash to the waist, a rosette and sleeves (much to Ella's disgust).
Overall: I really like this pattern. I will make it again, but go by measurements when choosing a size.
