This is an inter­me­di­ate sewing pat­tern that takes about a day and a half to com­plete. Sim­ply fol­low the instruc­tions in the print­able pat­tern and tuto­r­ial for sewing and stenciling.

If at any point you feel stuck, don’t fret! There are tons of great tuto­ri­als and videos out there to help you breeze through any sewing woes. That’s what the Inter­net is for, right?

We used Hand­made Char­lotte sten­cils for the con­fetti col­lar, polka dots on the bodice, and bunting around the skirt. You can pick up the sten­cils and all of the other sup­plies you’ll need to make the dress at JoAnn.com.
