Overall lovely simple dress

I really appreciate this beautiful dress pattern, and it sewed up very nicely. The only little thing that I would mention is the missing notches for the ruffle placement, they are not on the armhole portion of the pattern, as someone already noted. An experienced sewist can figure it out, but an unnecessary challenge for a beginner.

Sewing the ruffle/sleeve.

There is no markings on the pattern for the placement of the ruffle/sleeve at the arm hole which makes a difference in the amount of ruffling. My guess doesn't look like the picture. Also guessing front/back side of the ruffle pattern.
