pattern review: bubble dress

This is another Oliver and S dress, of course. I was scared to start this one at first, but once I got into it, it was easy peasy and really fun to make.
Pros: -Instructions very thorough
-Great for advance beginner/intermediate sewers
-Can be made with or without scalloped sides (which are easier than I thought)
-I learned a new, easy way to gather
Cons: -Bubble dresses aren't that great for 6 month old babies (would look cuter on someone who can actually walk
-Finishing the seam allowances where the bodice and skirt meet is kind of awkward.

All in all, great dress and easy to sew. The finished product fits well and looks neat.
