The overall finished look is cute. This style is meant to be OVERSIZED, however when I followed the measurement guide and cut a L (size 10) the top ended up HUGE. I'm pretty sure I could have fit a S. I'm not sure if it was just me, but (step ruffle 4) one of the pictures threw me off and I had to rip & re-sew. Instructions also included some basic sewing terminology & definitions which were VERY helpful. I'm an intermediate level sewer overall & beginner-level clothes-sewer & US size: 10-12 for reference.
