    This is sweet! I love the pockets too — they’re such an all round good thing. Pattern information?

    This is super cute!! I love it

    Did you use a pattern to make this or free hand? Because I have been trying to find a pattern like this to make a dress similar to yours, with no luck and I’m not sure I can do it free hand :)
