Monthly Pattern Review

Hi All!
Summer holidays for the blog lasted a little longer than we expected... but we are back with our Monthly Pattern Review!
This was a big hit here in Conversas, we love the Charlie Dress, by Mingo & Grace. So versatille and quick to sew! We definitly recomend this pattern! 

Assembling the pattern.  Very easy, not much paper needed!
Number of pieces: Top score on this characteristic! Very few pieces to put together.
Instructions: Very clear and detailed step by step.
Possible versions of the pattern: Does the kind of fabric to accomodate the season counts?! LOL. Only one dress version, but very good as a starting point to costumize.
Size range: 12M up to 12 years (size is accurate)
Problems: Nothing I can remember... I'll come back to this point if I find something!***EDITED***Size of the seam alowences 5/8?!? I hate when it's more than 1/2 cos my machine doesn't have sizes above that!
Final Result: Very cute dress! Perfect for all seasons, fresh for summer and perfect for layers in the winter
I have to confess something... I love layers and this dress is perfect for it! Just made one out of sweater with fleece inside, warm and confi for the winter, with a long sleeve t-shirt below and a jacket on top Teresinha is gona be ready to hit the park! 
I'm gona be a proud mom walking around with matching outfits made by me!!!
(Check Little Giant matching outfit here, I tried a picture of them together but It was.. how can I say it... like trying to take a picture of 2 turkeys on the run)

Summer version of the Charlie Dress, here!

Plus I can use this Dress to participate in the sew along that An, StraightGrain and Suz, Sewpony are organizing! :-)
