    Seriously. I am a semi-beginner and I picked this pattern because it was rated easy. But there is nothing easy about the instructions, so I really didn’t follow them, and I omitted the pockets because WTF. Thankfully the dress turned out cute on my daughter but I’m going to wait until I am much more experienced before I attempt any more Burda style patterns.

    The instructions for this pattern are so ridiculously hard to comprehend. I’ve been staring at it for an hour and can’t even figure out what to cut.
