    Lovely dress! I will try to make it, though I don’t have experience sewing by patterns – I used to draw my own patterns or draw a pattern with instructions. I have one question – the instructions say I need 4 front pieces and that I need to match 2 of them on the longest end – I only have 2 front pieces (or well, one, but I think I need it twice) and the longest end goes on the belt (I think) not on the other front piece. Help?

    Okay, never mind :-) first I clicked get instructions several times and there were just two pages with a pic if the dress. Finally I clicked the one that said to print at copy shop and lo and behold! Lol I found them! Thanks for this pattern! It’s very cute and I can’t wait to make this dress!

    I tried several time to download the instructions with no luck. Can someone tell me how to get them?

    This dress is absolutely fantastic. Forgive me of this is a novice question but the front and back shoulder seams seem to be different widths: how do I line them up? Thank you and thank you for sharing this pattern.

    I LOVE this dress, I am attempting to make it , but had a question about the pattern. I am unsure what you mean when you say the front pieces must cross at 7 cm and the back must cross at 4 cm. does this mean 7cm from the edge or from the middle?? Thanks!

      This is neither from the edge nor from the middle. Its the distance on which the 2 pieces overlap.
      So the end of each piece shall be 2 cm passed the middle for the back and 3,5 cm for the front.
      I hope it is more clear.

    This is a beautiful design! I was able to download the pattern but the instructions are blank when I open the pdf, it just says “Instructions…” and shows the pictures, how may I get the full instructions? Thank you!

      Just found it! For anyone else who missed it: click “get it now” and then download the file where it says “print pattern at home”, missed this important note from masty, my bad!

    I really love this pattern! I have finished my dress this morning and it came out great. The pattern is exactly my size. Although i had some difficulties while sewing (and ripping off again…) i will redo this pattern. Thanks very much!!!

    I’m with you it’s super cute and I’m dying to give it a try but the directions confuse me too. Though it just might be i’m not that sewing savvy.

      I’m really sorry if my instructions are not clear. Could you tell me which part you don’t understand? I’ll try to help. You can send me a private message if you want.

      It took me a bit of looking at the pieces but I’d figured it out. I don’t know why but looking at them and the instructions had me confused. But i was able to make a dress that i love, and i even made one for my 2 year old daughter. just added fabric to the low neckline it looks great thanks for the great pattern.

    Hi there, I love the dress and am attempting to make it this afternoon. I have all of my cutouts ready. But I am really confused as to where 2C goes. I don’t know where it fits in or what its supposed to be attached to. Any ideas???

      Sorry for the late answer… and the poor instructions.
      The “2c” marks on the pattern have no real use. I put them at first because I was not sure where I was going to place the different piece. I should have deleted them.
      The important parts are “2b” and “2d”.

      I’m not sure how to get in on this, but if 2C isn’t important, does the pattern end at 2B and 2D? And where is the fold?

    This was a great project! Im pretty new to sewing so it was a learn as I go kind of operation, I did get confused a bit at the oval in the back and how to sew the two backs together, but in the end I used a cute little snap to do the job ;)

    I love the style and I think the neckline is very flattering. Thanks!

    hello yes ditto to all thank you for the pattern…. this is a lovely dress and it is very generous of you. as it happens its in my size too…. :) but maybe there is someone out there in Burdastyle land who can grade it for those for which it is not.

    Good morning Masty; Thanks for the Sunny Top pattern instructions. While the dress is quite stylish, the neckline does plunge a tad too much for worship service. ;-) Your instructions were easy to follow, and a photo is always helpful. Cordially, Nehmah
