Figgy's Scirocco Dress

After making the Banyan Tunic and finding it a bit snug (I made a 4 for my 5-year-old because I usually have to size down), I thought maybe Figgy's patterns run small, so I chose a size 5 for the Scirocco Dress.
It fits perfectly in the front, but gapes in the back, so I think next time, I will do a size 5, but cut out some width from the back.
It's really a great little pattern.  Clear instructions.  Clear illustrations.  Very straightforward.  I had no trouble with things fitting together how they are supposed to, which is always a relief.

This dress is so unique and you end up with a completely lined and well-made garment.  That's so refreshing in the children's pattern business.  I feel like there are a lot of patterns that work, but the garment you end up with just doesn't look as good as it could.  This takes more time, but it's not any more difficult and you've got something you can really admire at the end.
